DBoyG - Pablo
With content as addictive as the resin of a poppy plant, the first offering from D.Boy G’s upcoming BlackList Hustle album G Season is the hustlers’ anthem “Pablo.” On the celebratory lead single, D.Boy bridges being a hustler and being an artist.

Over Latin-tinged production and a boisterous brass section co-produced by the artist himself and Mike Blayz, D.Boy G proclaims in a conversational delivery: “Oh Lord! Is he an artist or a drug lord?”

But this taste is just enough to get you hooked on the rest of D.Boy’s powerful product. A collection of records based around the art of hustling, G Season the street-praised album teaser “NBA” featuring Playboi C (produced by Mike Blayz), “Legendary” featuring Young Snead and YG (produced by Chophouze) and cameo verses from Dolla Boy of Players Circle.

Flexing over slick, mid-tempo production of tropical xylophones and back-breaking drums provided by beat bully BricksDaMane (Migos, Kevin Gates, T.I., Jeezy), St. Petersburg survivor son Lil Karri gets straight to the paper on his club-jumping new single “What You Doing.” In a catchy, controversial flow, he boasts about his goons, guns and greenbacks.

Atlanta, Ga. – In the five months since Atlanta rapper Bankroll Fresh (Trentavious Zamon White Sr.) was gunned down outside a recording studio, fingers have been pointed, accusations have been made and questions remain surrounding the incident that took his life on March 4.

Just last month, Bankroll’s childhood friend-turned-foe No Plug gave an exclusive interview with a popular website about the incident. In the interview, No Plug admits to a scuffle between him and Bankroll prior to the shooting and that local police questioned him about his involvement before being cleared of charges.

Rappers such as 2 Chainz, Lil Wayne, Juicy J and Plies have mourned the loss of the fallen entertainer. However, affiliates of Fresh have remained silent about the incident…until now. On the anniversary of what would have been Bankroll Fresh’s 29th birthday (August 2), Fresh’s cousin Street Money Boochie decided to open up about the controversial death of Bankroll Fresh in an exclusive interview with GRIP Magazine’s staff. The 30-minute full-length interview can be viewed now on gripmagazine.com.
