Earthgang And Smino Create An Immersive Aura With The Energetic ‘Ambeyonce’

Earthgang is back with “Ambeyonce” featuring the silky-voiced rapper Smino. The mid-tempo, instrument-heavy track allows the Atlanta duo and St. Louis talent the ideal canvas to show off their vocals in cohesion with their shape-shifting lyrical flows. This record was actually teased over two years ago and now arrives as part of the deluxe version of Earthgang’s February 2022 release Ghetto Gods, adding six new tracks featuring Wiz Khalifa, Currensy, and Blxckie.

The album’s previous iteration stood at 17 records, namely the singles “American Horror Story” and “All Eyes On Me,” plus “Billi” featuring Future, “Waterboyz” featuring fellow Dreamville mates JID and J. Cole, and “Amen” featuring R&B legend Musiq Soulchild. Prior to Ghetto Gods, the duo joined their original unit Spillage Village for 2020’s Spilligion, a quick follow-up to 2019’s Mirrorland and the Grammy-nominated Dreamville compilation Revenge Of The Dreamers III.

Earthgang has been one of the more active Dreamville acts over the years, often called a modern-day Outkast for their musical versatility, to which Olu and WowGr8 have responded saying the comparison is disrespectful. Despite grinding since 2010 and releasing quality music time and time again, they remain humble and acknowledge they still have plenty of work to do to even come close to such a level.

You can listen to Earthgang and Smino’s “Ambeyonce” here.

Ghetto Gods (Deluxe) is out now via Dreamville / Interscope. You can stream it here.

The Music World Shares Their Condolences After The Tragic Shooting At Texas’ Robb Elementary School

On Tuesday, The United States was once again hit with news of a mass shooting, and this time, it sadly occurred at an elementary school. An 18-year-old gunman entered Texas’ Robb Elementary School and began shooting at students and teachers in the building. The suspect, Salvador Ramos, was eventually shot and killed during a stand-off with officers. According to AP, the incident is the deadliest shooting at a U.S. grade school since 20 students and six adults were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut back in 2012.

The shooting at Robb Elementary School occurred just ten days after a racially-motivating shooting at a supermarket in Buffalo left ten dead. Unfortunately, both cases are examples of the mass shootings that occurred over and over again in the United States over the last decade. The shooting has left the music world to send condolences and extend a loving hand to a community, and a country, that could really use it.

Taylor Swift offered her words after she watched Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr speak passionately and criticize government leaders during a press conference. “Filled with rage and grief, and so broken by the murders in Uvalde,” Taylor wrote. “By Buffalo, Laguna Woods and so many others. By the ways in which we, as a nation, have become conditioned to unfathomable and unbearable heartbreak. Steve’s words ring so true and cut so deep.”

Missy Elliot also shared a message of her own on Twitter. “We living in some TRYING TIMES… It’s heavy,” she wrote. “I am praying for everyone that is struggling MENTALLY/FINANCIALLY/PHYSICALLY that some PEACE be RESTORED! So many in the world is dealing with pain & I don’t have the answers but I send you LOVE virtually.”
