YO GOTTI JOINS DRAKE VS. LIL WAYNE TOUR!
08 / 08 / 14
Get ready to learn The Art of Hustle from Yo Gotti…
The chart-topping hip-hop star, CMG C.E.O., and entrepreneur simply never stops. In between putting the finishing touches on his seventh full-length studio album and second under the partnership between his own CMG and Epic Records, The Art of Hustle, the hip-hop star will join the hottest tour of the summer, Drake Vs. Lil Wayne. He'll be appearing at selected dates beginning August 8 at Darien Lake Performing Arts Center in Darien Center, NY. Tickets are on-sale now!
Meanwhile, his new single "Errrbody" is already banging in clubs and gearing up to impact at Urban Radio on August 11. When the track hit online it immediately began spreading across the blogosphere. With its ominous bass-thumping production, Yo Gotti's inimitable wordplay, and an infectious hook, it exploded right out of the gate. Critics instantly took to it with XXL calling it a "banger", Rap Radar wrote, 'Errrbody' can get it", and Hip Hop Wired described it as "a hard hitting cut that the rapper treats with a unique flow". VIBE, AllHipHop, and more also featured it.
Yo Gotti also prepared a fast-paced narrative video for the song too. On August 12, "Errrbody" makes its world broadcast premiere on BET's 106 & Park and online via The Fader. The clip cleverly captures the song’s cautionary warning of trying to be something you’re not with a sharp cinematic story. It’s yet another unexpected and unforgettable vivid visual from Memphis's finest.
Not only is he a recording artist but also an entrepreneur as C.E.O. of his music label, CMG. CMG is home to three thrilling up-and-comers Snootie Wild, Wave Chapelle and Zed Zilla who are all making strides in hip-hop. The Art of Hustle is a statement from Yo Gotti though. As a child, he witnessed the "hustle" firsthand in a house with six women connected to some of the biggest kingpins in Memphis. He transplanted that hustle mentality and grind to music ultimately creating a multi-million dollar empire. Now, he's educating the world on this timeless art—no matter if you're grinding on the streets to survive or ascending the corporate latter.
Hustling is an art, and Yo Gotti has painted his masterpiece.
