Lupe Fiasco ft. Ty Dolla $ign – “Next To It”

A far cry from the first single off his upcoming record Tetsuo and Youth, Lupe Fiasco digresses from the empowering ode “Mission,” to welcome us to an entirely different side of the album with “Next To It.” Lupe describes the song as being in the “ratchet zone,” going on to explain that his new album will be “compartmentalized into different zones,” during an interview with MTV.

Who better to hop on the song than Ty Dolla $ign, the West Coast rapper who has been popping up everywhere from the XXL Freshman Cover, to 2 Chainz‘s latest EP FreebaseNext To It” certainly has what it takes to get a party started, a simple but polished affair that sees Ty Dolla supplying a steady dose of his silky vocals.

Check out the track below, and stay tuned for the release date for Lupe’s Tetsuo and Youth.

    You know it’s ratchet because it has that trap-staple “hi” sample in the beat.

    It hurts but Lupe fell off hard.

  • Abe

    Just the hook over and over again, not the actual song. Fucking DJ.

  • Konrad Ziemlewski

    It’s dope for what it is, but I’m more excited for his Skulls project thats exclusively produced by Soundtrakk, because them two together = greatness

    This kid is just having some fun and people think he’s fallen off. He’s only been getting stronger homey.
