YG and Nipsey Hussle have had it with Donald Trump. The two west coast emcees teamed up to air out their grievances against the potential GOP nominee on their new track “FDT.” What does FDT stand for? Well F*CK Donald Trump of course.
The track opens with audio of black students who were barred from attending a Trump rally at their own school. YG and Nipsey hold nothing back on the almost 4 minute song calling out the Donald’s racists rhetoric and ideology. Check out the cover art and listen to YG and Nipsey Hussle’s poignant new record “FDT” below.
Dropping the official remix featuring Nicki Minaj, Yo Gotti premieres his new visual to the #1 hit single “Down In The DM” with cameos by Snapchat King – DJ Khaled withMachine Gun Kelly, YG, Rae Sremmurd and CeeLo Green.
Check out the hilarious visual, as tempting moments appear in a few DM’s at a bachelor party all the way to the actual wedding ceremony. You can also find Rae Sremmurd coming down the aisle doing the Nae Nae, Dabbin’ along with a few other dance moves.
Khaled then comes in to lay down the law with his famous catchy phrases:
Is she loyal? Is she smart? Is she grateful? Does she have the key to your heart?

Recently, the up and coming Las Vegas talent stopped by Stuff Fly People Like‘s very own, SFPL TV to talk about his upcoming debut EP YouExecutive Produced by Timbaland, hisforthcoming mixtape Songs You Were Made To,wanting to work with Quincy Jones, Kehlani and Meelah (formally of 702) and also speaks on the phrase “R&B is dead,” which seems to be a verbal term that is used due to the disappointment of Soul music. In the midst of the interview, Castro also performed the Ready For The World classic, “Love You Down” LIVE.
About Timbaland he says:
Ah man, it was an outer-earth experience man…he’s an alien! That’s what I call him! He’s great, he’s inspiring, and he just really knows how to really elevate one’s prospective, especially on their approach to music.
About the term “R&B Is Dead”:
I think R&B is confused. I don’t think it’s dead, I just think it’s confused. I think that because Hip-Hop is so dominant that the R&B guys are trying to figure out a way…(as he pause, sighs and thinks of the right words to say)…….It’s like this, I feel like R&B now is “Rap-Melod'” — it’s rap lyrics sung over R&B melodies. You know what I mean? Which, takes away from the essence of R&B. The true core of R&B. That’s what I feel about it — I just think it’s confused.
Check out the FULL interview below and the LIVE performance:
Today, R&B singer-songwriter Tanea, released her debut single “Trippin,” off her new EP Female Intuition, scheduled for release at the top of next year. The 4HUNNID artist was first discovered by YG, who included her on the then-up-and-coming MC’s mixtapes. It was her incredible writing skills that really made her standout.
“I’ve always love what Tanea brings to the table, she’s a real artist with relatable stories to tell,” said YG. “Trippin is just an introduction to who she – keep your eye on her, she’s bringing fire.”
Born and raised in Los Angeles, Tanea used music as a tool of expression in the face of hardships, consistently finding ways to buck the odds and navigate through the highs and lows of life. In an industry where songs about popping bottles dominate the airwaves, Tanea delivers stories inspired directly from the obstacles that she’s overcome—a refreshing change being kick-started by an artist with a unique voice.
There’s a new artist in town, and his name is JR Castro! With Timbaland working the music aesthetics of his upcoming EP You, there’s no doubt the JR will be the next breakout-star.
Now, JR Castro continues his string of releases and teams up with YG and Sevyn Streeter on the Polow Da Don produced banger, “That Shit Go” (Up-Down). While his debut single, “Get Home” featuring Kid Ink & Quavo of Migos continues to heat up at radio, the North Las Vegas native keeps his foot on the pedal and continues to show his versatility on “That Shit Go”.
Castro says with a grin,
“This is a song about a battle for bedroom supremacy and it definitely looks like I lose out to Sevyn on this one.”
Will this song appear on JR Castro’s debut EP ‘You’Executive Produced by Timbaland…Only time will tell.
