Chance The Rapper Teams Up With Young Thug on ‘Big B’s’ [LISTEN]
Hours after announcing that SoundCloud was “here to stay,” Chance the Rapper showed support for the streaming platform by dropping a new collaborative song with Young Thug called “Big B’s,” which stands for “Big Business.”
It’s a fantastic track with its thumping beat, organ stabs and keyboard groove. Thugger kicks it off with his braggadocios verse and he name checks legendary Houston rap duo UGK and Queen Latifah.
"Catch them at the club sipping, f--- around they missing, hold on / Big pimping, iced out my crew now my mission complete / Pimp C, I ain’t doing that, I'ma f--- her on the sheets, yeah / And all my n----s loyal like Bun B, hold on," he raps, adding, "F--- around and set it off like Queen Latifah."
Chano has the standout verse on the song as he celebrates his success an independent artist who is always doing big business.
Gross three mill off the new hat / If I could go back, I make the two cap / Love me in my city like Cusack / Get a little beat and I'll loop that / Get a little money, I'll oop that / Split it with my niggas in the group chat," he raps.
This isn't Chance and Young Thug's first collaboration. The duo first perform together on “Mixtape” from Chance’s Grammy-winning project, Coloring Book.
As for "Big B's," this will definitely bring more ears to SoundCloud, which is reportedly struggling financially. However, Chance and SoundCloud CEO Alex Ljung have rest assured fans (and artists) that the streaming platform is here to stay.
"The music you love on SoundCloud isn’t going away, the music you shared or uploaded isn’t going away, because SoundCloud is not going away," said Ljung in a blog post. "Not in 50 days, not in 80 days or anytime in the foreseeable future. Your music is safe.”
