Isaiah Rashad Drops A Deluxe Edition Of ‘The House Is Burning’ With Juicy J, Young Nudy, And More After ‘Homies Begged’

The world waited nearly five years for Isaiah Rashad to make his return to the music world and finally, at the beginning of August, he did just that. The TDE rapper touched down with his second album The House Is Burning, and it was met with rave reviews from fans. Guest appearances from Lil Uzi Vert, Jay Rock, SZA, 6lack, Smino, and more also stood out on Rashad’s latest body of work. Nearly four months after he released it, Rashad returns with its deluxe version simply because the “homies begged.”

The new version adds four songs to the project’s original 16 tracks. It finds Rashad sticking to his Tennessee roots by sharing a remix of “RIP Young” with Juicy J and Project and heading to Atlanta for “Deep Blue” with Young Nudy and “Geordan Favors” with Deante’ Hitchcock. Lastly, the TDE rapper recruits West coast singer Umi for the deluxe edition’s closer, “Donuts.”

Prior to sharing the deluxe version of The House Is Burning, Rashad released videos for “THIB,” “Chad” with YGTUT,” and “From The Garden” with Lil Uzi. He also stopped by A COLORS Show to deliver a vivid performance of “HB2U.”

The House Is Burning (Homies Begged) is out now via TDE/Warner. Get it here.

Young Nudy And 21 Savage Assert Their Dominance In The Haunting ‘Child’s Play’ Video

Young Nudy may have already put out his second project of 2021, Rich Shooter, but he apparently remains just as dedicated to promoting the first, Dr. Ev4l. When the album first dropped, the song “Child’s Play,” which features Nudy’s cousin 21 Savage, was tabbed as an early standout. Today, the terrifying twosome releases the video for their collaboration, teaming up to share a taunting visual component to the spooky single.

As always, when these two link up, they bring the best of each other lyrically, as they compare themselves to the doll villain from the film series “Child’s Play” is named after. Throughout a series of eerie, fog-filled night shots, the duo cruises through an abandoned junkyard, the rusting husks of the automobiles looming like tombstones over the moonlight scene.

While Nudy has geared the majority of his videos this year toward the Dr. Ev4l album, including “2Face” and the title track, he hasn’t neglected Rich Shooter. In August, he shared the surreal video for “Green Bean” shortly after the album’s release as he toured both albums at the same time, playing up the competition with a “Dr. Ev4l Vs. Rich Shooter” theme.

Young Nudy Is A Science Experiment Subject In The Surreal ‘Green Bean’ Video

In the video for Young Nudy’s latest Rich Shooter single, “Green Bean,” the Atlanta-bred rapper relaxes on a bed of green pellets as scientists take notes, explores the solar system, and gets lost in an extraterrestrial rain forest, all while he reels off the details of his illicit activities over a bouncy beat provided by Pi’erre Bourne.

Rich Shooter, released on August 4, is Young Nudy’s second project of the year after the horror-themed Dr. Ev4l. He’s currently in the middle of a tour promoting both projects, the Dr. Ev4l vs. Rich Shooter tour, pitting both of his alter egos against one another through 10 cities including his native Atlanta, with dates remaining in Silver Springs, New York, Philadelphia, and Boston.

If we just went by singles, Dr. Ev4l would be ahead in that competition, with videos out for the title track, “2Face” featuring G Herbo, and the haunting “Soul Keeper.” Nudy also explained why it’s harder for him to collaborate with other artists in a July interview, saying, ““You gotta go in there and fake smile with somebody… They not just going to let you in the door.” With two personas to choose from, it’s less of a problem, although something tells me his real breakout will come when he gets over that social anxiety and starts working with some bigger names.
