It looks like there's still room in the year for Juicy J. After his banging #MustBeNice mixtape this month, the Memphis pioneer has dropped a new single from his forthcoming Rubba Band Business album called "Ballin" with Kanye West on Beats 1. "Ballin" is possibly the most generic name for a rap song ever, so it's fortunate that this song goes hard. Both Kanye's and Juicy J's production styles are represented here, with a filtered soul sample at the beginning and Three 6 Mafia-style piano loops later on. Most of the song's quotables are from Juicy J, as Kanye mainly yells "I'm ballin!" in a weird stuttered flow. Have a gander at this track below.
