Solange f/ The-Dream & BJ The Chicago Kid – F.U.B.U.

CtZV0jSWgAA8-XI

First off, let me just say that Solange’s new album, A Seat At The Table, is awesome. Seriously. The album’s super solid and as a bonus, Master P drops little bits of knowledge throughout the album via multiple interludes — yeah, Solange snapped.

Ok, back to business. Solange’s latest LP includes a very dope collaboration with Chicago’s own BJ The Chicago Kid and The-Dream titled “F.U.B.U.,” which you can stream below.

A Seat At The Table hits iTunes later tonight. Cop it twice.

Video: BJ The Chicago Kid – Woman’s World

Screen Shot 2016-05-09 at 10.30.38 AM

The premise and idea around this video is amazing. BJ flew his mother to LA, for a surprise performance in front of an audience of one (Herself.) Where BJ performed his own person show for her. Brilliant. Luckily, someone had the sense to film it and turn it into a music video, which premiered on BET yesterday in honor of Mothers Day. Today, the internets get a chance to watch this brilliant idea come to life.
