The Play (Music Video)
Wiz Khalifa dropped a new rap song, “The Play” today. Produced by Harry Fraud, this is (according to Hot New Hip Hop) the second song where Wiz has sampled an indie-pop/rock song (though the sample artist is really more alternative rock/electronic) Bat for Lashes “Moon and Moon”. Wiz has released 3 songs in the past 3-4 weeks on Youtube, one a freestyle over Marvin Gaye “Good For Us” and the other, a new single, “No Permission” as Wiz continues to dominate music charts this month. Below is also a notable remix of Bat for Lashes “Daniel” the artist Wiz samples for his latest track.

In other news, Atlanta rapper, ice-cream man and king of “Burr!” himself, Gucci Mane will be releasing an album produced by EDM giant, and everyone’s favorite krunk white-boi, Diplo. On Twitter, Diplo mentioned that although the album was originally billed as (and promoted by Gucci) as an EDM album, it no longer will be. It will have influences from electronic but should be something completely unique and different, Diplo says. Diplo and Mr. Guwop himself expect to have the album released this year.
