Juicy J and Kanye West have teamed up on a new single "Ballin," that should appear on the Three 6 Mafia member's upcoming album Rubba Band Business. In addition to the single, they have unveiled the fire music video for "Ballin" that is a TIDAL exclusive right now.
As the title would tell you, Juicy J is the man leading the charge on this single. He trades lines in the hook with Kanye West who only says three words this entire song "and I'm ballin" but with different inflections each time.
Juicy J handles both of the verses as he spits some braggadocios lines about his money, influence and ability get women.
"Bout to hit the club like golf balls / Paparazzi tryna catch a n*gga off guard / N*gga got me off the chain like guard dogs / Come on, dog / I'm too high, hot air balloon / All star, I'm on another planet / I just joined the fortune five hundred / Now I'm in the boardroom in pajamas," raps Juicy J in the very strong first verse.
It is kind of disappointing to see a track billed featuring Kanye West and he only says three words the whole time, but his line is something that could make this an earworm heading into the winter. The strong beat also helps.
The song was premiered yesterday on Beats 1 with Zane Lowe as the World Record. Speaking to Zane after, he said that his album Rubba Band Business would be out potentially in January.
The track comes with the accompanying music video that takes the song name to heart. It finds both West and Juicy J in a large warehouse with a basketball court and some ballers playing. There is pyro to make the game and video more exciting. Watch it over in TIDAL here.
