Post Malone Enlists 21 Savage for ‘Rockstar’ Single

Post Malone is prepping for the release of his sophomore album Beerbongs & Bentleys with some help from 21 Savage.

Posty, who is currently on the “Stoney Tour” through North America, has reportedly enlisted the ATL rapper for “Rockstar,” the first single from his second full-length album. According to HipHop-N-More, the collaboration is set to drop Sept. 15.

In December, White Iverson previewed “Rockstar” on social media. “Your girlfriend is a groupie,” he sings on the track. “She’s just trying to get in / Saying ‘I’m with the band’ / Now she acting out of pocket, trying to grab up on my pants.”

The Posty and Savage connection could prove to be another Hot 100 smash. Malone currently has the No. 21 record in the country with “Congratulations,” while Savage’s “Bank Account” is No. 12.

Initially due in June, Beerbongs & Bentleys is the follow-up to the platinum Stoney, which spawned several platinum hits, including “Congratulations,” “Go Flex,” and “White Iverson.”

Nicki Minaj Says Her New Album Is ‘So Fu**in’ Good’

Nicki Minaj is excited about her first album in three years and she’s letting her fans know all about it. Over the weekend, the Young Money queen spoke with supporters about what they can expect from the forthcoming LP, her first official release since 2014’s The Pinkprint.

“I love you and I adore you,” she told her Barbz while leaving the Philipp Plein show during New York Fashion Week. “Oh, the album. Oh my God! The album is so fuckin’ good!”

This is the latest update on Minaj’s upcoming fourth studio album. In June, she also provided some insight into the creative process. “That’s next on my bucket list,” she said, “to deliver my fourth album and make sure that it’s a classic hip-hop album that people will never forget.”

At the time, she also explained why it will be her greatest effort to date. “I know it’s going to be my best body of work and I always love to be in real time, see my fans reacting to something,” she added. “That’s what I’m looking forward to now. Obviously, I’m not telling them when my album is coming out, but I know that it’s gonna be amazing because I want to thank the people who’ve rocked with me for all of these years.”

Back in March of 2016, when she was still dating Meek Mill, she also discussed the new album’s potential joy. “I needed time to hear myself think again because where I left off with The Pinkprint was a little bit emotionally unstable,” she said. “Now, I want my happiness to be reflected in the new stuff.”

Since then, the couple broke up and she’s been in the lab with various artists, including Quavo. The pair even filmed a music video for the yet-to-be-revealed collaboration.

Despite the many updates, Nicki has yet to reveal a timetable for her fourth album’s release.

New Music: Maxo Kream feat. Lil Uzi Vert – ‘Mars’

Lil Uzi Vert blasts off to “Mars” on his collaboration with buzzing Houston MC Maxo Kream, a lean-fueled expedition over energetic production.

Uzi handles the chorus, while flexing and boasting about his rides. “I woke up right there on Mars,” he raps. “Pull up, my car, it goes skrrrt / Flex on that bitch, I’m like, ‘Swerve!’ / Flex on that bitch ’til it hurt.”

Meanwhile, Kream seems more focused on drugs and hallucinations. “Sipping codeine for my haachoo,” raps the 27-year-old. “Xans with the lean, call that thot juice / We not congruent, I’m obtuse / I be on lean like hypotenuse / I take that acid and mushroom / Everything look like a cartoon.”

While Uzi’s Luv Is Rage 2 topped the Billboard 200, Maxo made headlines when his family was seriously impacted by Hurricane Harvey. Taking to Instagram, the rapper expressed gratitude for survival. “This last weekend really showed me how God can bless yu and test yu at the same time,” he wrote. “When word got out the my Mama Daddy(who is very sicc) lil bro and lil sis was stucc in a flooded house wit no food or lights my fans went over and saved them. Not only that that came bacc and help clean up the house.”

But Maxo is confident that his family will bounce back. “It might look like a lost but to me it’s a gain… with my faith and God and this music,” he added. “We done lost everything b4 and got it right bacc so this lil storm ain’t gonna hold us bacc. Jus make us stronger and bring us together not jus as a family but as I city.”
