Featuring Pop Smoke, Benny The Butcher, Rich The Kid x NBA YoungBoy, and more.
The week has peeled off the calendar, which means two things: 1) the weekend is imminent; 2) it’s time for the updated Forever Cold❄️ playlist.
DJ Forever Cold has returned to apply his expert filter to the myriad of drops from this week. Consistently with the recent Forever Cold❄️ playlists, today’s edition is loaded with banger after banger from a wide-array of talent. Headlining today’s list are: Benny The Butcher, Pop Smoke & Lil Wayne, Rich The Kid & NBA YoungBoy, and Yung Bleu & Drake.
Blasting the door off the hinges, Benny The Butcher has come through with his highly-anticipated LP, Burden Of Proof. Featuring exclusive production from Hit-Boy, Benny’s latest endeavor continues painting him as one of his generation’s most nimble lyricists and storytellers. Hit-Boy’s dynamic instrumentals coupled with Benny’s gritty approach yields another sound product from the Buffalo native. The album closer, “Legend,” and the Freddie Gibbs-assisted “One Way Flight” have made this week’s list.
Next up, the late Pop Smoke’s hit “Iced Out Audemars” has been augmented by Lil Wayne’s iconic presence for the track’s official remix. Rumors about this collaboration began brewing towards the beginning of the month, and now that it’s finally arrived, fans can rejoice in hearing two legends of different eras unite.
Following the star-studded duo lead, Rich The Kid and YoungBoy Never Broke Again have delivered their new single, “Bankroll.” Teased with billboards throughout various cities, this joint venture has been garnering interest since the moment whispers of its existence began permeating the industry. It’s unclear if this is an a la carte offering or the impetus for something greater, but by itself, “Bankroll” is just further evidence of these two artists’ hit-making penchant.
Last, but certainly not least, Yung Bleu, the burgeoning Alabama artist, has quite possibly just seen his career transformed overnight — Drake has hopped on the official remix for his “You’re Mines Still” track. The fan interest in this union began earlier this week when Bleu posted a screenshot of a DM conversation between him and the 6 God, showing an ecstatic Yung Bleu on the precipice of collaborating with one of the GOATS. In real time, we were able to see what it’s like to be both a fan and a peer.
Other artists to make this week’s playlist include: Rod Wave, Young Nudy, Sada Baby, Cdot Honcho, Ty Dolla $ign, Lil Gnar, and Yella Beezy.
