It’s raining G.O.O.D. Music news today. Earlier today the official release date (September 4th) for Cruel Summer was announced. Not only can we start marking off calendar days for the label’s first compilation album, 2 Chainz‘s “Birthday Song” featuring Kanye West is being streamed by Fader magazine right now. Tonight at midnight the song from 2 Chainz’s forthcoming Based On A T.R.U. Story will be available on iTunes. In the meantime listen to the potential breakout artist of the year rap, “all I want for my birthday is a big booty gul” (that’s his southern pronunciation of girl). This southern gal knows.
“Birthday Song” will have no trouble in the area of club or car stereo play. Produced by Atlanta’s Sonny Digital and Kanye West, the booming bass in the beat stands out more than anything. As 2 Chainz alludes to in the song, they are the new age Snoop and Dre. “Deuce and Yay, we like Snoop and Dre.” Those are heavy hitters to measure oneself against. Kanye’s produced enough quality hits to backup that sort of statement. Let’s see if 2 Chainz can show and prove. He’s off to a G.O.O.D. start. No pun intended.
