From the Field to the Booth, BlueBucksClan Brings their A-Game

Emerging out of Los Angeles, BlueBucksClan is a rap group on their way up. If you don’t believe us, maybe you’ll take Drake’s word. The record-breaking superstar coined the Clan “two goats” after catching their Fire in the Booth freestyle earlier this summer. And Drizzy hasn’t been the only superstar to show love to the dynamic duo. Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and a few more famous names have also shown love to the South Central-bred duo, who has collaborated with the likes of Quavo, Hit-Boy, Bino Rideaux, Kalan.FrFr and Lil Yachty.

The duo made up of DJ and Jeeezy Obama has been carving out their own lane off of the strength of their fresh and energetic sound. And that sound continues to resonate with more and more fans. BlueBucksClan has pulled in more than 200 million streams across all platforms over the course of their burgeoning career. Songs like “Walkin’ In” and “Shit Talk” have both reached over 4 million plays on Spotify, where the guys have averaged more than 385,700 monthly listeners.

Their next project, Clan Way 3 drops soon via Out The Blue Records/Capitol Records. BlueBucksClan is out to prove that they aren’t playing around with the third installment of their Clan Way series. They’ve teamed up with hit-making producers such as Jetsonmade, Zaytoven, Honorable C-Note and Buddah Bless, as well as their go-to beat-makers to curate the sonics for their latest mixtape, Clan Way 3. Look out for the singles “Jeeezy WYA”, “I Guess” and “FYM” to appear on the anticipated 18 song-project.

Consistency is Key

Representing heavy for the West Coast, BlueBucksClan’s music reflects the sound and lifestyle of their hometown. In 2019, Jeeezy Obama and DJ formally joined forces and released their first mixtape, Clan Way. The tandem have been on a roll ever since the release of their debut project. They’ve followed up strong with several buzzworthy mixtapes and eps, including No Rules (2019), Clan Way 2 (2020), Going Up, Clan Virus (2020), No Rules 2 (2020), Clan Virus 2 (2021) and See the Difference (2022).

BlueBucksClan’s love of sports runs deep. The more you tap into their music the more obvious that love becomes. Their lyrics are full of clever references to their favorite pastimes and top tier athletes. The group who has released songs with titles such as “Mike Tyson“, “Horace Grant”, “Victor Cruz”, “Jeff Gordon” and “Todd Gurley” even cemented their relationship as a result of their love for sports. The childhood friends first linked up on the football field as youth athletes and later reconnected as a rap group after they attended college on football scholarships.

BlueBucksClan have only been releasing music as a squad for a few years and yet they’ve already accomplished what it takes some artists forever to do. The dynamic duo with cosigns from Drake and Kevin Durant should be on your radar for a few good reasons. As they gear up for the release of their Clan Way 3 project, BlueBucksClan shows no signs of slowing down.

15 of Our Favorite Met Gala-Inspired Rap Lyrics

It’s that time of year again. It’s the first Monday in May, which means the Met Gala is once again upon us. This year the hotly anticipated gala officially returns to its normally scheduled programming. As a result of the COVID-19 crisis, the annual event, also known as the Costume Institute Gala, was placed on hold in 2020, while last year’s downsized version took place in September during New York Fashion Week.

The Met’s 2022 theme is In America: An Anthology of Fashion. It’s the second half of the Costume Institute’s two-part exhibition dedicated to American fashion, which began with 2021’s In America: A Lexicon of Fashion. For this year’s Met festivities, Hollywood A-Listers Regina King, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are holding down the co-hosting duties.

The Met Gala raises funds that benefit programs and exhibitions sponsored by the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute. It also gives celebs a reason to pop out in some of the most unique and eye-catching outfits. With nicknames like the Super Bowl of fashion and fashion’s biggest night out, the Met Gala is arguably the biggest night in fashion. Famous faces from all walks of entertainment come together in celebration of the opening of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s yearly fashion exhibition. It’s a big deal not only for the fashion world, but for the world of hip-hop as well.

<code><p class = "instagram-media">https://www.instagram.com/reel/Cc8xdOnKsXZ/?utm_source=ig_embed\u0026amp;utm_campaign=loading</p></code>

Nowadays, hip-hop heavyweights are permanent fixtures on the Met’s red carpet and at the after-party. The likes of Ye, Megan Thee Stallion, Rihanna, Beyoncé, Cardi B, A$AP Rocky, Diddy, Migos, JAY-Z and many, many others have made their presence felt at the Met Gala. So it should come as no surprise that the Met Gala has been the subject of quite a few rap songs and lyrics. The star-studded affair has inspired some dope bars, as well as some not-so-dope lyrics. The gala has been mentioned by rap stars who have attended and popular artists who haven’t been lucky enough to strut their stuff at the event. In honor of the 2022 Met Gala, we’ve put together a list of some of our favorite Met Gala raps.

B.I.B.L.E. – Fivio Foriegn 

Aye! Aye! Aye! The Brooklyn naive first appeared on most news feeds and in algorithms with his viral hit “Big Drip.” Since then, he’s become one of the faces of New York Drill off of the strength of standout performances on tracks with some of hip-hop’s finest. He put his best flows forward on Drake’s 2020 mixtape cut, “Demos” and upped it from there with a scene-stealing verse on “Off The Grid,” from Ye’s Grammy Award-winning Donda. Now he’s ready to take center stage with B.I.B.L.E. The 17-track album features the singles “City of Gods” and “Magic City”, as well as contributions from Quavo, DJ Khaled, A$AP Rocky and of course Ye, who serves as the project’s executive producer.
