Lil Yachty, Cardi B And Offset Ask "Who Want Smoke?" On New Track

Back in May, from the studio with Blocboy JB, Lil Yachy previewed a song leading hip-hop heads to believe that the two collaborated on the record.

But that's not the case. Today (July 5), the finished song, "Who Want Smoke?" featuring Cardi B and Offset, hit the digital streets. Bronx native Cardi kicks in the door on the song's first verse, claiming her self-dubbed title as the King of New York:

"I-I-I hear shots comin' on the low from hoes I'm higher than/This attention is so flatterin' 'cause they're admirin'/Don't know what's on their mind, but it should be retirement/Get the AARP or this AR get to firin' (blat)/They don't want smoke with me (no)/The diamonds is chokin' me, their pussy need potpourri/These bit*hes is 0-3/And there ain't a lower league, all in my ovaries," raps Cardi B.

In related news, Cardi B recently snagged her second No. 1 record on Billboard Hot 100, thanks to her J. Balvin and Bad Bunny-assisted single, "I Like It." Yachy is working on projects with Takeoff, Trippie Redd, and Lil Pump as well as Migos and Gucci Mane.

Lil Yachty Shares How He Penned City Girl's Hit Single "Act Up": ”I Wrote The Whole Song Except For J.T.’s Last Verse”

City Girls' raunchy lyrics and persona are all their own, but Lil Yatchy helped the Miami duo with their latest hit single, "Act Up."

Yatchy shared details behind his collaboration with the rappers, noting that he penned the song with the exception of J.T.'s second verse on the song. “When it came out, people was so shocked and they didn’t believe it,” he told influencer and DJ Kerwin Frost Thursday (April 18). “I wrote the whole song, except for J.T.’s last verse. But everything that everyone is singing, I wrote the whole thing.”

J.T. (Jatavia Johnson) is credited as a writer on the song, but Caresha “Yung Miami” Brownlee isn't. This doesn't take away from Yung Miami's pen game as she's noted as a writer on other songs from their album, Girl Code.

Yachty added this was his first time writing a song for another artist. He was inspired to do so by a friend and wanted to embody their raunchy style with the track. “I just thought like them. I know them personally and I know what women like to hear,” he explained. “I was like, ‘What’s some raunchy sh*t?’ So before I went in the booth, I said, ‘No homo y'all.’ Because all my boys was in the room. And I started saying just crazy sh*t. But I came out and I was like, ‘Y'all watch, this is about to blow up.’”

Yachty was right. In addition to the Cardi B-assisted "Twerk," "Act Up" has been sitting pretty on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. "Act Up" hit the Top 40 recently while "Twerk" reached No. 29 in February. City Girls recently earned their third week at No. 1 on the Emerging Artists chart.

Yachty says the experience has inspired him to write for other artists and engage in writing camps with producers. A few of the songs he's done will be dropping soon.

"People always try to discredit me. So when I saw it, I realized how I get my credit a different way," he said.  "I write sh*t all the time… I can think like other people. That was a real fun experience for me, and it was most fun when it leaked to the public. I spent a few days just reading people’s responses because I didn’t speak on it, I didn’t say anything.”

Yatchy's knows a thing or two about making hits. The artist has two Top 10 singles and earned a Best Rap/Sung Grammy Nomination for "Broccoli" with D.R.A.M. in 2016.

It's About Time: Cypress Hill Receives Star On Hollywood Walk Of Fame

Cypress Hill doesn't always get the credit they deserve for their impact on hip-hop history, but they've been honored forever with a revered star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

With a career of 30 years, the legacy of the four-man group of B-Real, DJ Muggs, Sen Dog, and Eric Bobo (along with former member Mellow Man Ace) includes six platinum albums and 90s zeitgeist songs like "How I Could Just Kill A Man," "Insane In The Brain," and "Hand On The Pump." They released their self-titled debut in 1991 and the chart-topping follow-up Black Sunday two years later,  and have continued creating ever since, releasing their ninth and latest album Elephants On Acid in September 2018. Cypress Hill are considered West Coast rap legends, and the first Latino rap group to have multiple gold and platinum records. Anchored by Muggs' gloomy, gritty production and B-Real's nasal, charismatic rhymes, Cypress Hill is as much a part of rap history as anyone.

The group's ceremony included speeches from Latino comedian George Lopez and fellow West Coast rap legend Xzibit, who said 'it's about time' before detailing the group's illustrious career.

Xzibit pointed out Cypress Hill not only brought Latino representation in an industry that largely lacked it, but that they were staunch marijuana advocates way before today's growing legalization.

"The Grammy-nominated group showed us stoned is indeed the way of the walk. Long before the days of legal dispensaries and medical marijuana, Cypress Hill were advocates of that sticky icky icky oooh wee!" Xzibit shared. "...Cypress Hill are pioneers in their own right. Their accomplishments and accolades reach deep in the roots and history books of hip-hop, and today is another chapter in that saga. Yo B-Real, Sen Dog, Muggs, Bobo: you are our Rolling Stones, Ungrateful Dead, you are the West Coast Public Enemy."

Lopez insisted that out of all the 2,600 stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, "there are none more important than the one we're about to unveil for Cypress Hill. There's a lot of actors, there's a lot of comedians, there's a lot of entertainers who are on this (Walk of Fame). But there's only one cypress hill, the first Latino hip-hop group. But to everyone who lives the American dream, not the last Latino hip-hop group to ever be on the Hollywood Walk of Fame."
