DJ Kay Slay pours up another high-powered collaboration with “Rosé Showers” featuring French Montana, Dave East, and Zoey Dollaz.
Following a Montana verse about having sex, making bread, and sipping Hennessy, East raps about Gabrielle Union and his love for the bubbly.
“I was in the trap with my gun in hand,” he raps. “Now it’s champagne, I don’t wanna dance / Rosé, Dom P, Clicquot, I’m bent / Blue hundreds, fuck what I spent.”
Finally, after a hook by J-Delice, Zoey rounds out the track with a final verse that references Tupac Shakur, The Notorious B.I.G. and his nightclub activities. “Hundred bottles of Rosé, 10 bad bitches up in the section,” he raps. “Lotta real ones, lotta weapons / Tell them hatin’ ni**as get to steppin’.”
This is just the latest release from Kay Slay’s forthcoming album, which has already spawned “Cold Summer” (featuring Kendrick Lamar, Mac Miller, and Kevin Gates), “Jealousy” (featuring Busta Rhymes, Tech N9ne, and The Game), and “Wild One” (featuring 2 Chainz, Kevin Gates, and Rick Ross).
The Big Brother is due Sept. 22.
After joining Lorde, Post Malone, and SZA on “Homemade Dynamite (Remix),” Khalid unleashes the soulful “Perfect.”
Calling it “a song from the soul,” the stirring track features the VMA winner’s soothing vocals over an acoustic guitar. “I’ve been on my own for a long time,” he sings. “I’m feeling kind of lonely / Nothing’s fun when I’m the only one out here who knows me.”
Khalid also offers introspection on changes, sadness, and the search for perfection. “I know I’ll never be perfect,” he sings. “I’m thinking out loud, but I know someone will hear me / Crying out for help.”
After unleashing the rough draft, the “Location” singer explained that it might remain the only version available. “I’m probs gonna leave it at rough draft,” he said. “The first song I released was a rough draft on SoundCloud. I’m leaving this on SoundCloud as well. Thank you guys, love you.”
Currently, Khalid has four songs on the Hot 100, including “Young Dumb & Broke” (No. 26), “Location” (No. 28), Marshmello’s “Silence” (No. 59), and Logic’s Alessia Cara-assisted “1-800-273-8255.” The latter is presently No. 3 overall, marking his highest entry yet.

After reports of “great progress” in rehab, DMX is choosing to extend his stay in the program.
X’s lawyer, Murray Richman, tells TMZ that X is sober and “back to being human again.” He also claims that the MC, who lost weight due to his recent addiction struggles, has already gained 40 pounds in treatment.
Despite the fact that X is almost done with the New England program, the rapper is asking to stay for another 30 days, according to Richman. He is currently allowed to take day trips to a nearby town with a friend.
The superstar, who reportedly failed four drug tests in August, was on house arrest for tax evasion before entering rehab. Richman claims that they will focus on the legal matter once he’s out.
In July, the Ruff Ryder was arrested for allegedly engaging in a multi-year scheme to conceal $1.7 million in taxes from the Internal Revenue Service. If found guilty on all charges, he could face over 40 years behind bars.
Rick Ross takes it back to 1995 with his remix to Total’s “Can’t You See” featuring Bruno Mali.
Renzel kicks off the track with a shoutout to Bad Boy, while his Maybach Music Group drop pops up in the background. “Follow the code,” he raps. “Shorty swallow me whole / I met her climbing a pole and let her climb in the Rolls / Ever since Bad Boy, we’re elegant.”
After Total’s infectious hook, Bruno arrives with some bars about his Toledo penthouse, being undefeated, and pouring purple up by the liter. “I’m just a ghetto kid who made it big off entertainment,” he raps. “You in the light so much, bitch, they gon’ need restraining / Pull up in the four-do’ / Name ringing like Quasimodo / I was bumpin’ Total / Tell your bitch to get off my scrotum.”
At nearly five minutes, this version also includes Notorious B.I.G.’s classic verse from the song, which peaked at No. 13 on the Billboard Hot 100 back when it first dropped in ’95.
Listen to Rozay and Mali’s “Can’t You See (Remix)” below.
Gucci Mane’s book signing at a New York Barnes & Noble was interrupted by animal rights activists on Tuesday (Sept. 19).
During the release day meet-and-greet for The Autobiography of Gucci Mane, Guwop was approached by an activist, who had been posing as a fan. “Word on the street is that you thinking of going vegan,” he said. “But you can’t be vegan if you keep wearing that fur!”
After shaking Gucci’s hand, the man was joined by a woman. Together, they chanted “Shame on Gucci, animal abuser,” while being escorted out. Meanwhile, DropTopWop stood calmly while his security swiftly took action.
Taking to Instagram after the signing, Gucci thanked fans for their support and did not mention the incident. “Off probation today and my book is in stores NOW! What a day,” he wrote, adding, “On jet headed to tour in Ohio leaving NYC thanks NYC for showing love and supporting me at book signing.”
Gucci isn’t the only one who’s been approached by activists during a book signing. In April, anti-fur protesters interfered with Kelly Rowland during her meet-and-greet for Whoa, Baby!
