It’s official that Lil Mosey makes a return with his new single, “Flu Game.” In his new track, Mosey refers to Jordan’s infamous performance in the 1997 NBA Finals, game five of the Golden State Warriors series. A video directed by YUNGTADA accompanying the song, which is a tribute to the great basketball legend from Seattle, features the rapper wearing his uniform as well as mentioning him throughout his verses:
The rise of Lil Mosey to prominence was fueled by the release of his Norths best album in 2018. This 12-track collection featured a solo guest appearance by BlocBoy JB. Double-Platinum single “Noticed” was on the project. With his next album, Certified Hitmaker, Lil Mosey was once again able to tap into the talents of artists such as AJ Tracey, Trippie Redd, Gunna, and Chris Brown. “Blueberry Faygo,” the platinum-certified record he had released on his first album, was the catalyst for his run and it went on to reach the eighth position on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
An earlier interview with the rapper of “Jet To The West” revealed who he wants to collaborate with and who his dream collaborator is. “Drake. During my time in the military, I met him a number of times. I was in the studio with Preme when I was in Toronto for the recording. In the middle of recording, he pulled up next to me and started talking. My meeting with him in Miami as well as in Toronto showed me that it is very likely going to happen soon. This time I’ve got some really good stuff to give him. Eventually that will be the case,” he said, adding that it would happen someday.

The international rap star Lola Brooke has returned with a brand new single today (March 10) titled, “So DISRESPECTFUL.” The new single we hear today is the follow-up to her recent showstopping appearances on the tracks, “Opp” with Coach Joey and “Conceited” with Flo Milli. In the new single, the Brooklyn native makes the most of the bass-heavy instrumental that Reefa and Gyard co-produced with her signature gritty flow by combining it with Reefa’s signature beats– all of which she uses to her advantage.
Despite enjoying viral success through her popular single “Don’t Play With It” featuring Billy B, Lola Brooke has been able to maintain her momentum all throughout the month of 2022 with tracks such as “Dummy Ummy,” “Here I Come,” “Gator Season,” and “On My Mind.” There has been no let-up for the “718 Princess,” whose signing to Arista Records in collaboration with Team Eighty Productions was officially announced back in January.

As early as this year, J.I. made his way back with a lot of loose drops such as “Black Roses” and “It’s Officially Done”, the latter of which premiered exclusively on Complex. As he continues to build on his momentum, on March 3rd, the New York City artist released a new song titled “Save You.” This song tells the story of a person needing someone to get them through hard times. Featuring a group therapy session, the short was directed by Derek Dreamfilms and Artixan and is set in a psychiatric hospital. It is only after he reveals to the group of musicians that he is addicted to pain that the 21-year-old rapper reveals to them his regret-filled hook:
It was in 2022 when the artist J.I., who is best known for his “Need Me” record, released his last album Young & Restless, Vol. 1 Baby Don, an album with 12 songs comprised an assortment of fan-favorites such as “Taken for Granted” and “Love Letter.” While this album was slightly lacking in features, it featured production by names like Whippit Up Sensei, Hagan, D.O.C, Chef Dior, Ambezza, GLVCK, CorMill, and more.
According to an interview with J.I., the musician spoke about what it was like to sell out SOBs, a famous venue in New York City, at such short notice. It was a very emotional moment for me because it was a result of hard work. The story of my life is a crazy one. In the future, you guys will be able to understand why it is that I’m so dedicated to my craft and why I go to such lengths to make it successful. I have had a long journey ahead of me. I find myself overwhelmed even by the fact that I am here. In my city, most people do not leave the city. At least, I don’t know of any people who do.” he said.
