Rucci & AzChike Take It to the “After Party” with Haiti Babii in New Video

Tearing up the block with their street stories and function anthems, Rucci & AzChike are a match made in L.A. Rap heaven. For the latest music video from their first-ever collaborative album Kourtesy of Us, Chike and Rucci connected with Haiti Babii for the music video for album highlight “After Party.” The track is more a celebration of the California natives’ come ups than what one might expect from a song titled “After Party.” With the trio rapping in unison, “Just be yourself my n**** / Just focus on your wealth, my n****,” to close out the song, “After Party” is for raising a glass to the ones that have been along for the ride. In the Stacking Memories directed video, Rucci, Chike and Haiti Babii host a low-key studio after party with LA baddies and their closest associates.

Rucci & AzChike Form a Dynamic L.A. Duo on “Kourtesy Of Us” Album

Tearing up the block with their street stories and function anthems, Rucci & AzChike are a match made in L.A. Rap heaven. Joining forces for their first-ever collaborative album, Chike and Rucci share Kourtesy Of Us, a 21-track project. Like any hall of fame-worthy duo, the interplay between Rucci and AzChike is a study in contrasts–Rucci attacks the beat with a breakneck, snapping flow, while Chike’s oblique delivery finds hidden pockets in instrumentals, helping his disrespectful punchlines stand out. They have their similarities as well: both rappers are fearless on the mic, willing to say absolutely anything, whether they’re stacking outrageous flexes, elucidating details of their chaotic pasts, or poking fun at fakes and lames.

The album is home to recent singles like the slinking, piano-laden My N****s,” and the gleefully inappropriate Hoodrat,” featuring a guest spot from Boosie BadAzz. Packed with production from maestros like Cypress MorenoAceTheFaceHitmanRob ViciousBruce24k, and more, Kourtesy Of Us is an expansive survey of West Coast sounds, from the dramatic bass & piano lusciousness of “No Time,” to the swirling synths and insistent 808s of “Get Back Gang,” the pizzicato strut of “Fasho Poppin,” and the luxurious electric keys of “Thug P*ssy.” Throughout, Chike and Rucci remain quotable, ping-ponging verses as they demonstrate why they’re among their city’s elite. Featuring appearances from KamaiyahBoosie BadazzHaiti BabiiCapolow, Kalan.FrFr, and many more, Kourtesy Of Us is available everywhere via Mackk&Cult/EMPIRE.

Buoyed by AzChike’s addictive hook and a plinking piano melody from producer Fortwoe, “My N****s” is a slinky slapper, its off-kilter bounce offering an ideal cadence for each rapper to “rock out like KISS.” The song arrives with a fun-loving video, packed with homies from South L.A. and Inglewood. Rucci takes the time to school fools on the basketball court, while Chike gets his Mozart on, playing the piano while beautiful women dance on top.

Annihilating L.A. instrumentals with reckless abandon, Inglewood native White John is well-respected in his city’s rap scene.

Rucci – Understand (feat. Blxst) [Video]

It’s been a busy week for Rucci — just days after he shared Midget Deluxe, adding nine new tracks to his sophomore album, he’s back with the video for “Understand (Ft. Blxst).” It’s an aching rap ballad that sees Inglewood’s Rucci and LA’s Blxst tapping in with their romantic side to apologize for wrongdoings and declare loyalty to their respective girls. In the video, the pair are kicking back, sipping milkshakes with their friends and lovers at a local diner. 

Rucci Releases “Midget” Deluxe Album

Mixing heartfelt emotion with disrespectful flexes, Inglewood’s Rucci is the total package. Treating his fans to an expanded version of his latest album, Rucci shares Midget (Deluxe). Adding 9 new songs to the original 15 tracks, Midget (Deluxe) encapsulates the full breadth of Rucci’s talent for punchlines and deeply felt bars about his family history.  All nine new songs build on the themes of Midget, drawing you in with a classic Rucci turn up anthem with “Hotel,” he laments a heartbreak on “Do I Ever,” furthers his undeniable chemistry with AzChike on “Watch Me,” and my personal favorite is the twangy banger “Where I’m From,” ft. Bandgang Lonnie Bands and Shoreline Mafia’s Ohgeesy.

Inglewood’s prodigal son Rucci is back with the video for “Complicated.” It’s a track emblematic of where Rucci is at in his career and where he’s headed—he’s gained fame and critical praise for his presence on the mic, but he won’t feel fulfilled until he’s able to fully provide for himself and his people.

Rucci & ALLBLACK – Okay Doeee (Official Video)

One of my favorite songs off Rucci’s recently released sophomore album Midget is “Okay Doeee,” an LA (specifically Inglewood) and Bay Area (specifically Oakland) connect between him and ALLBLACK. In the video for the single, Rucci and ALLBLACK execute an elaborate heist — turning themselves in to the LAPD before taking cash from the evidence locker and heading to an underground casino. It’s as entertaining as it is an absolute banger, with Rucci and ALLBLACK asserting what they’re about right away, “What you ’bout? I’m bout a bankroll.”

Beat Boy’s Latest Visual Featuring Rucci & Big Sad1900 Has ‘Em “Shook Up”

Beat Boy is back with another superb visual for “Shook Up” from his debut project NewDre. The Los Angeles producer has the competition shook up as he recruits two of LA’s hottest rappers Inglewood’s Rucci and West L.A.’s Big Sad1900. Rucci kicks off the track by brashly bragging “I’m up 100 racks, but I had better days”. Followed by Big Sad’s flashy “gave 10 to my lawyer, put 30 on my wrist, like Paul with the ball I don’t hog I assist”. 

“Shook Up” is latest video to come from the platinum selling producer’s meticulously curated debut project NewDre, which dropped July 31st via OTR Records and boasts a hand-picked selection of features from Shoreline Mafia’s Fenix Flexin’, Rucci, White John, Niko G4, and others. NewDre shows Beat Boy fully embracing his role as one of the cultural pillars of L.A. rap music. Like Dr. Dre and Mustard before him, Beat Boy is laying the foundation for the sound of West Coast and defining rap music for years to come – “All Gas. No Breaks.”
