New Music: YG Hootie — “Two Presidents” (feat. Kendrick Lamar)

Bricksquad spreads its wings to the Left Coast where Compton rapper Young Hootie hooks up with former high school classmate Kendrick Lamar for “Two Presidents.” The end result is crazy, with Commander in Chief rhymes that will make you forget the YoungBloodz ever happened.
