Artist Velous Drops His Fly Track “Flipmode” [New Music]

After coming off a year which saw him make guest appearances on highly popular records alongside the likes of Fabolous, Rick Ross, Tyga, Jeremih and more, Velous has also raised his level of clout by producing hits for various artists including the much talked about Kanye West record “All Day,” which helped Velous snag two Grammy nominations.

Shifting gears into artist mode, the Kingston, NY native released singles “Sex And The City” and “Flex Wit You,” featuring his Coke Boy brethren French Montana, both of which have helped him win over more fans to add to his cult following. As he gears up for the release of his forthcoming debut album The Disco, Velous blesses listeners with a brand new high energy self-produced cut titled “Flipmode.” Hopefully, there’s a full remix to follow if Busta Rhymes tags onto this fly track!

French Montana Takes Us To The Desert For “Figure It Out” feat. Kanye West & Nas

french

French Montana takes us to the California desert for his video for “Figure It Out,” the standout track off his Wave Gods mixtape released back in February. The visual for the Kanye West and Nas collaboration was shot at the Mojave Air & Space Port back in March.

The striking video follows Montana, West, and Nas as they roam the desert surrounded by planes that have long been forgotten, as riders on dirt bikes fly through the air performing ridiculous tricks.

The release of the video coincides with the announcement that the Bronx rapper inked a deal with the new joint venture between Epic Records and Bad Boy Entertainment. Montana was previously signed to Interscope Records where his sophomore LP Mac & Cheese 4 faced a myriad of delays.

Watch the video below. “Figure It Out” is now officially available at digital retailers and on streaming services.

New Music: Producer of Kanye West’s “All Day,” Velous Leaks New Single “Sex And The City”

velous-sex-and-the-city

Artist/producer Velous has been a busy man within the 18 months. From signing with French Montana’s Coke Boys imprint via Swanky Music Group, appearing on DJ Spinking’s “Adult Swim” alongside Tyga & Jeremih, producing Chinx’s “Dope House,” as well as appearing on Fabolous’ standout record “Gone For The Winter,” the Kingston, NY native has definitely left his footprint on the music scene. Moreover, early this year, the youngster was further thrusted into the spotlight after producing Kanye West’s much talked about single “All Day.”

Since then, Velous has been tucked away in the studio putting the finishing touches on his forthcoming debut project The Disco. With the project produced entirely by Velous, it will also feature his brand new record “Sex And The City.” The track was first played by Boi-1da on Drake’s OVO Sound Radio last weekend, prompting Velous to leak the record himself at the behest of listeners. The full CDQ version will be available on “The Disco,” which is slated for release soon.
