Yo Gotti embodies all that represents the hustle. He’s mastered it in many ways. For one, his progress in the industry has been substantial since he started. We watched him from his days with Cash Money, through his epic mixtape era and now where he’s at. A respected veteran who earned the title. It’s less about releasing free music and more about calculated records like “11/11″ to build buzz toward his next album, The Art Of Hustle. If the album is anything like I Am, it’ll be more satisfying. “11/11″ is backed by a dope Infamous production and littered with… continue reading
At some point, it seems likely that Yo Gotti’s “Lay It Down” was going to make I Am. No matter where you place it, the Megaman-produced record could fit into the content offered on his sophomore album. He gets his story telling on, much like “Cold Blood.” Maybe he didn’t want too many stories on the album. Singer/songwriter Chris Echols delivers a great hook too, but being more known as a writer this could just be a demo version. All speculation. Good song regardless. Shouts to Sherm.

The remix just doesn’t seem to be becoming much in hip-hop anymore. Most rappers do them but don’t know how to properly create a memorable one. For Yo Gotti’s “Lebron James (Remix),” he keeps the same verses from the original with a Meek Mill verse tacked on at the end. It would’ve worked better as the original, but since Meek is already on another I Am record it wouldn’t have made sense. Previously: August Alsina Ft. Yo Gotti – Ghetto Follow @SermonsDomain
Def Jam’s August Alsina is back with an updated version to his Knucklehead produced-cut “Ghetto,” which was originally featured on the New Orleans native’s Downtown: Life Under The Gun EP. With his forthcoming debut album expected to drop in the spring, Alsina enlists the help of Memphis-bred Yo Gotti for the official version. Give it a spin up top. Previously: Future Ft.

DJ Esco is preparing his next mixtape, No Sleep, for December 17. You know what this means, expect plenty of new Future records. On top of that, he’ll have Meek Mill, Birdman, French Montana and more featured. The first single is Future’s “Day 1,” assisted by an autotune-using Yo Gotti. If you’ve been rocking with the same folks since the beginning, this is your anthem. Future continues to hit these records out the park as we wait on Honest. Previously: Future – Regular Party (Prod.

Yo Gotti is far from a mainstream name. He’s an underground King in the highest sense of the title. His fan base has been loyal and growing for over a decade. It’s just now that Gotti is slowly breaking into the mainstream with singles like “Act Right” and “King Shit,” both found on his latest album, I Am. However, he’s not straying away from the street music that made him. If anything, he’s just sharpening that sword and adding a unique paint to the blade.
