Ant Beale, Charlie Heat & Rich The Kid Drop "Dirty Taurus" Remix
Biz 3: Ant Beale has dropped the remix of his breakout single "Dirty Taurus" featuring Rich The Kid, premiered today via High Snobiety. The original track has earned over 1.8 million streams, a standout from his collaborative No Rain No Flowers EP with G.O.O.D. Music producer Charlie Heat, out now via House of 99 and Downtown / Interscope Records.
"Dirty Taurus" is a nostalgic track for Ant. "When I was about 10 my grandmother had a Ford Taurus; we lived out of it for a few days, and it really did say 'Wash Me' on the back. To this day that's my least favorite car. I made that song just for myself, and I never really expected it to be more than that-it's just real shit that happened to me." Ant then took his newly discovered talents to writing Kehlani's "Undercover" for her debut album in addition to finishing his own No Rain No Flowers debut.
"Ant Beale is very clearly someone we'll all be hearing a lot more from." - HIGH SNOBIETY

N.S.: With transcedent lyrical skills, an impossibly perfect rap voice, and a uniquely cool, calm, and collected flow, Brooklyn rapper Your Old Droog is one of the brightest young stars in hip-hop today. The Ukranian-born MC released his sophomore album PACKS earlier this year, and now he's debuting the official music video for the standout track "Bangladesh". A collaboration with Queens rapper Heems (of Das Racist fame), "Bangladesh" finds the NYC natives trading punchline-packed verses over a hypnotic flute loop courtesy of RTNC and Droog himself.
Chitown Street Heroes Lil Durk and Lil Reese Share Collaborative Supa Vultures EP
A.T.: Premiered by Noisey and Distributed by EMPIRE, the EP Features the Anthemic Hit Single "Distance" and Production from Chopsquad DJ
"Unshackled from any kind of outline, Durk's pen game shines. His rise was dotted with blood-soaked tales that summarized much of drill's appeal: ground-level glimpses at Chicago's South Side that colored in the outline offered by grim murder statistics." - Pitchfork
"'Distance' is one of the hardest records to come from Lil Durk or Lil Reese in years, with a piano-laced beat from Chopsquad and a staccato counterpoint in Reese combining for a record that leaves as much unsaid as spoken, describing street dynamics and leaving details below the surface." - Complex
"Lil Durk and Lil Reese reunited and made the project you've always wanted" - Noisey
Drill rap pioneers and masters of anthemic street music, Lil Durk and Lil Reese are Chicago's best duo since Jordan and Pippen. Joining forces for a six-track EP, Durk and Reese release Supa Vultures, their first collaborative project. Lil Reese's menacing and understated flow blends seamlessly with Lil Durk's mastery of tone and melody, creating an entrancing yin-yang effect that carries the project and rewards multiple listens. Released in July via Billboard and recognized as one of Chicago's hottest singles in Complex's Bout to Blow, the EP's opening track "Distance" is an entrancing drill anthem and the most popular local YouTube song in Chicago, decrying fakers and preaching the importance of putting in hard work for a successful rap career. Featuring soaring, piano-led production from Chopsquad DJ and others, Supa Vultures demonstrates the continued relevance of Chicago street rap, with highlights like the paranoid-yet-triumphant "Unstoppable," the sidewinding and menacing "Fuck Dat Shit," and the moving Durk solo track "Nobody Know." Debuted by Noisey and distributed by EMPIRE, Supa Vultures is available for purchase and stream.
"I've got Reese focused," Lil Durk explained to Noisey. "He ready to work. It ain't the regular Reesie everybody used to. I brought him out of his shell, he brought me out of my shell. I'm thirsty for the fans to hear it. We're gonna shoot these videos and we're gonna turn up. He wasn't really too much focused at first, but he was telling me, 'I want to get back into it heavy.' I said the first way to introduce it is to do a group tape. [The fans] always wanted that anyway."
Since moving to Atlanta from Chicago, Lil Durk has been quietly dominating the Hip-Hop landscape, collaborating with countless artists both established and on the come-up. Lil Durk most recently linked with Quavo & Lil Yachty for "Homie Bitch." The OTF (Only The Family) spitter also made appearances on Young Thug's EBBTG, Trae Tha Truth's Tha Truth 3, and Ralo x Gucci Mane's Ralo LaFlare. Durk's February project Love Songs For the Streets featured YFN Lucci and Young Thug, as the 24-year-old honed a matured sound. Emerging from the streets as a leader of the first wave of drill, Lil Reese first came to national attention as the lone featured artist on Chief Keef's breakout hit "I Don't Like." The momentum from that earth-shattering hit brought much attention to Don't Like, Reese's debut mixtape, which was hosted by DJ Drama and featured the hit single "Us," which received a remix featuring Rick Ross and Drake.
As figureheads, along with Chief Keef, of drill's Class of 2012, the Lil Durk and Lil Reese developed a well-worn, infectious chemistry as frequent collaborators, ranging from 2012's Young Chop-produced "Beef" (6.4 million views on YouTube), to 2015's "Myself." The Supa Vultures EP is the culmination of five years of experience and friendship, and stands tall among each rapper's discography. "The Supa Vultures title is a combination of us -- Reese got his Supa Savage compilation and we always say we vultures," Lil Durk told Billboard. "We don't eat each other, we eat other people and keep everything in the family. If you're with us we call you a vulture and you're our brother. There's never been structure between the older guys and the younger guys like us so we starting our own thing so we can pass down things to the younger generation."
