PnB Rock “Middle Child” Featuring XXXTentacion: Listen to New Song
The new song, released on Friday (May 3), is produced by DatKidChris and finds the two artists trading melodious bars over a distinctly trap soundscape. "So much cash in my jeans, Louis V., pocket wallet/Niggas hate, niggas bitches, niggas bitches, pocket watchin,'" XXX rhymes on the chorus.
"Ooh, 30s out (Yeah), fuck you talkin' 'bout?" Rock raps. "(Yeah)/Yeah, runnin' 'round the city, I swear/I'm lurking out (Lurking out)/Damn, buying shit, I'm off a percy now (Percy now)."
PnB and X were close before the Florida rapper's death in June of 2018. Prior to his passing, the two collaborated on "Changes" from X's 2018 album?. The song garnered a platinum certification by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) just four days before X's untimely passing.
The LP and PnB's new X collab arrive just one day after the Philly artist told Beats 1 Radio's Ebro Darden that he was a top five songwriter of his generation. PnB says that, while other all-time greats might outrank him, he's clearly one of the greats of today.
"But in this generation, in this time...this generation of hip hop. I would say, I'm top five. For sure," PnB stated. "I feel like I gave a lot of these new up and coming artists, not on no trying to take credit for nothing, but I helped...generate this sauce that's like this rapping, singing, trapping, and being comfortable with the...You know what I'm saying? I'm one of the first ...to do that."
