Young & Reckless
Real always recognizes real, and that’s why you’ve probably heard BJ The Chicago Kid thanks to his feature work with the likes of real ones like Big Krit, and Warren G., and Freddie Gibbs to name a few. In fact, it was BJ’s signature Chicago Soul that stole the show on his 2014 TDE look that finally pushed the young champion out into the forefront. “Studio” by Schoolboy Q featuring BJ was a monster record, and inescapable on radio, clubs, and parties for nearly two summers straight. His infectious hook only brought to the masses the sentiment that many of us already knew – the kid’s a star.

Dreezy spoke to Coveteur about the lovelorn record.

"‘Love Someone’ kind of fell in place on its own.

I didn’t even plan for him to be on it, but it spoke to my heart and the emotion I had on the song. There was a point where I almost cried listening to it back.”

The record appears on Dreezy’s Big Dreez, which was released back in January. Jacquees is slated to release his forthcoming album, King of R&B,  on Nov. 8.
