J.I.D. Jumpstarts 'DiCaprio 2' With New Single "151 Rum"

J.I.D. kicks off Dicaprio 2 season. 

J.I.D. fans have been going bananas waiting on the second installment of Dicaprio. We don't blame J.I.D.'s diehards. The Dreamville Records rookie MC can rap his ass off.

This week, the ATL-bred stepped out with Dicaprio 2's first single, "151 Rum." Over mean production by Nice Rec and Christo, the "Lauder" rapper follows his winning formula of unloading a slew of head-scratching rhymes that cover a range of topics such as poverty, black on black crime, and clever metaphors for lyrical lovers.

"Son of a god, son of a bitch/Son of a woman and man, son of a son/And then sunk in abyss, summon a plant/Please come with a strip/Cover my back, cover mad/Please come with the bliss/Look at the stash, J.I.D like a magician/Fuck that, this some real ass shit/I paid blood for this/Taking cheese from the government/Cereal boxes, put the bugs in it/Hand me down then my brother brother shit," raps J.I.D.

J.I.D. took to Instagram to announce the new single and provided a some background info on the song.

“This project isn’t like The Never Story or anything you heard from me before,” the Spillage Village rep said on Instagram. “It isn’t my GKMC or whatever else you are expecting it to be ‘headass’ lol. It’s not what I expected it to be, but I love it and I appreciate the journey it took me through to get me here.”

“Each song feels like an individual film to me,” he added. “Mac came thru and helped post produce and organize on almost every song on here. I worked on being a better writer, even outside of punchlines and shit. I can rap all fucking day, but I like writing songs and shit too. I really just challenged myself to becoming better, period. This album is for car rides, working out and smoke sessions (in cars) or wherever you wanna smoke that’s sonically friendly.”

Dicaprio 2 will follow The Never Story, which included bangers "EdEddandEddy," "Never," and "Underwear." The 12-song effort, released in 2017, featured cameos from EarthGang and 6lack.

Here’s what the next two weeks look like on the @latelateshow! Seeing the year out with a bang x x x

A post shared by James Corden (@j_corden) on Dec 10, 2018 at 5:17pm PST

In addition to the “Money” rapper, Amber Heard and Armie Hammer will also appear on the same episode. Corden is closing out the last leg of 2018 strong by having a slew of other prominent stars on the show on the last week before the program goes on break for the holidays. The likes of Gwen Stefani, RuPaul, Jennifer Lopez, Emily Blunt, Leah Remini, Lin-Manuel Miranda, among others will be featured on the show after Bardi’s Monday episode.

To say the least, we're sure the British talk show host and the newly minted Grammy-nominated rapper are going to have the time of their lives.

The 26-year-old's now estranged husband Offset, along with the other members of Migos were guests on the beloved show. Joining Corden as he drove through the streets of Los Angeles, the trio performed a slew of hits including "Walk It Talk It"  while also giving a nod of praise to past hits, including Whitney Houston's "Wanna Dance With Somebody."

With all the fun Migos had with Corden, we can only imagine what shenanigans James and Belcalis are going to get into.

Usher Releases "Peace Sign" Video Off Of 'A' Project

Given Monday's (Dec. 10) debate about who's the king of R&B, one of the names that steadily popped up in the conversation has stepped onto the scene. In a visual promotion for his A soundscape, Usher released the video for "Peace Sign" alongside producer Zaytoven.

Previously, the pair hit the studio for an eight-track project that pays respect to their hometown of Atlanta, Georgia. It was surprise-released in October and effortlessly fuses ATL's aura on the soundscape. Now, the "Peace Sign" video puts that decision into cinematic motion.

"Atlanta offers a certain attitude and a sauce that I can't explain, and it is a little bit in 'No Limit,' it is a little bit in 'TNT.' I'm literally talking sh*t, man," he said in an interview with The Fader. "I'm popping sh*t that I haven't popped, like really ever. And that's what being in the moment creates. When you have months and months to think about it and you begin to analyze all the people who you need to think of and what you want this entire project to work out, you'll lose certain elements of your spontaneity an incredible culture that just happens in the moment. I didn't give that space. I really was honest with the feelings, I was honest with the conversation and I was really in the moment. And I thank Zay for that."

T.I. Releases Short Film For "The Amazing Mr. F**k Up"

T.I. keeps himself accountable for his wrongdoings in the cinematic visual for "The Amazing Mr. F**k Up."

Premiered Monday (Dec. 10) on his series T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle, the track featuring singer-songwriter Victoria Monet, is flipped into a 10-minute-short film. Directed by Mike Ho, the short film stars comedienne Britney Elena, Colombus Short, Woody McClain and model Denise Rodriguez.

Starting at a fancy dinner gathering among friends, things take a turn for the worst when the rapper's other partner invades the feast. On the Dime Trap cut, T.I. calls out himself for his past mistakes and deviances with acknowledgment on how he needs to do better.

"It's amazing all the sh*t I done / Such examples I've been setting for my son / All she did was stay down and have my kid / All the time just to realize I ain't sh*t," T.I. spits. In addition to the rapper flexing his acting chops, the album version of the song includes the infamous scene in ATL between Tip and Lauren London, where his character snatches a necklace he gifted for New New.

The rapper is currently closing out the year on an impressive note as it was revealed that his music has been streamed 276 million times on the music streaming service Spotify. "A modest flex to end my 18th year in this sh*t!!!! Multitudes of Gratitude!!! #NextYearWeGoBigger!!!!," the Grand Hustle emcee tweeted on Saturday (Dec. 8).
