I miss his work. Considering he left because of a severe issue with substances, I'm glad he's taking his first tentative steps back to music.
Glass Swords one of the most influential albums of this decade, can't tell me otherwise. people still making struggle rip-offs of 2012-era Rustie (and TNGHT/HudMo) in commercials/jingles these days.I miss his work. Considering he left because of a severe issue with substances, I'm glad he's taking his first tentative steps back to music.
All those tweets about the disrespect of "Glass Swords" on these "Best of 2010s" lists were right.
Also, this Mutant Joe fella has produced some highkey bangers.
One of the new tracks off Don Life is “Wolves,” a collaboration with Post Malone. What’s the story behind that one?
[That song is about] my family growing up. Everybody’s in there, my grandma, my mom, my brother — it’s like they were a pack of wolves and they were the sweetest and strongest. It’s one of my favorites on the album.
How did you and Post connect for it?
Post Malone heard it early. I ran into him at a restaurant, and we were kicking it. It was like a mutual-respect-type of exchange. We were both working, so I’m like, “I got this song. See what you think.” When I sent it to him he was like, “Man, this is incredible. I have to, let’s do it.” A$AP Rocky is on there too, at the very beginning just doing some ad-libs.
I thought that sounded like Rocky’s voice.
Rocky had a verse on [the song originally], but he ended up doing the verse to another song that he and I felt fit a little better with the album. That’s another song I got with MadeinTYO. But I just kept it dialed-in throughout. There’s a song where Meek Mill just says two lines, and Puff had a couple of lines.
Came in here to post this. No bullshit I thought this nigga was lip-syncing. For a minute I turned around and thought i was listening to Jay.
