Young Thug and Duke Kick It With the Homies on “Stand Up N*?!as”
Duke revisits his Blue Devil mixtape and releases a new video for the track “Stand Up Niggas” featuring Young Thug. Over the TM88 and Weezy-produced beat, Duke and Thugger rap about people who keep it 100 percent real.
"Start in the streets then I took off with rap/40K riding on my lap, come around play and get clapped/Fuck all the fake hugs and daps/Where my stand up niggas at?" he raps on the hook.
Blue Devil was released in last July. The 16-track mixtape featured appearances from Young Thug, Trae the Truth, Shad da God and others. Production comes from the likes of C4, TM88, Wheezy, Cassius Jay, and Billboard Hitmakers.
Last week, the YSL Records MC shared “Billboard” featuring Wiz Khalifa and Dave East. The Wheezy-produced single is off Duke’s forthcoming Life in the Hills project. There isn’t a release date for Life in the Hills but it should be dropping soon.
Lil Duke has been popping up on Young Thug's projects for the last few years. Last November, Thug signed a label deal with 300 Entertainment for his own YSL Records imprint. He posted a video on Snapchat showing off his new office for YSL Records within the 300 Ent. headquarters.
“Him starting a new venture is going to take us to a different mindset and not just in artists in this particular case,” 300 co-founder Kevin Liles says in a video clip about YSL.
