VMAs 2017: What to expect

Yo Gotti has himself a big one. The Memphis rapper has linked up with an all-star cast of rappers in Kanye West, Quavo, 2 Chainz and Big Sean on his new single "Castro." The song comes just as Yo Gotti celebrates another big win in his life - signing to Roc Nation. "Castro" is the new single from Gotti's upcoming album White Friday, which will be released on Dec. 23.

The rappers spend the opening section of the song shouting out various people like Castro; referring to recently deceased Fidel Castro (it isn't clear if this was recorded before or after his death, John Travolta, Pablo Escobar and JLo.

"Cubans on me like I'm Castro/ Hit your b*tch with a backstroke/ Spanish b*tch, J.Lo / Dope money, Pablo / Astronaut, take off / John Travolta, face off / In the kitchen, have a bake off / She gon' snort her whole damn face off," rap the MCs in the hook.

Quavo and 2 Chainz take their own respective verses, while Kanye helps out Yo Gotti on the first. The lines are sharp and keep things moving from one hook and verse to the next. This will make some noise as Yo Gotti wraps up his successful 2016 that included the hit "Down In The DM."

The wining formula of having Quavo on the feature continues with "Castro" it appears to show no signs of slowing down. We will see how this impacts Migos and Quavo's solo career, but for now, Quavo as a featured artist is thriving.

"Castro" will be one of the first singles off of his upcoming album White Friday, the rapper's sixth in total. It will follow up The Art of Hustle, which was released earlier this year. Fans will also receive "Weatherman," as an instant download tomorrow if they pre-order the album.

Yo Gotti announced the big news that he is signing with Roc Nation with a series of posts showing a celebration with Jay Z and some drinks.
