ZMoney’s back with brand new music and for this latest joint, he collaborates with King Louie. About time, right? No word on if “Public” is set to appear on Z’s upcoming three disc project, 3mpire, but it’s certainly a banger.
Honestly, I can’t think of a better way to start the day than with new music from Z and Louie. Give “Public” a listen or two below and look for Z’s empire project to impact later this year.

Whoop! One of my favorite songs of the year gets a crispy new video by the lovely ladies of Verluxe. This is the Joey Purp solo shot from the Leather Corduroys album. Now wipe him down — this joint is too trill.

Y.E. Ali grabs Kami De Chukwu for his new single, “Semi.” Y.E. got with Noisey to premiere the song, where he talks about its origins with Bauce Sauce:
Well, now it’s out there. It’s Y.E. People can’t act like they don’t know now. This remix is for a song that was off your debut project “Art x Drugs,” which came out a few months ago. How did this come about?
I’ve been wanting to do a “SEMI” remix for a while. I held off because I wanted to find the right person, someone kind of unexpected. Me having roots in Chicago, I am aware of the scene and the artists coming up there. Through my management, I met Kami met out at SXSW and chopped it up a bit. Once he sent me his verse, I did my new verse. We re-engineered it and added a bit more flavor on it. I’m from the same area, so I was aware of SaveMoney, mostly through Chance. I like Kami the most. He has a real aggressive tone, which fit it perfectly. It was good to get someone like that on the remix. It sounds effortless.
The remix is definitely way more militant. The dog barks weren’t in the original. That was a nice touch. So speaking of SaveMoney… they are out here getting kids to invest in a 401K and cop some bonds. Has their movement rubbed off on you? Are you out here saving money?
You know what I am saving money. This legal trapping. I don’t live an extravagant life so it’s not hard to stash money away and budget.
