OG Maco and Hit-Boy have been on a tear as of late; Maco with his 15 track self-titled EP and Breathe, both coming seemingly simultaneously, and Hit-Boy comes off the cusp of his production work from Nicki Minaj's "Feeling Myself" featuring Beyoncé. They both have done it again as they are featured on the HS87 duo, Audio Push's new track "Heavy". In case the OG Maco and Hit-Boy names weren't enough to set you over the edge, Audio Push also attached this note on SoundCloud accompanying the song, "The best thing since grits and eggs... Album on the way!" Whether "Heavy" is featured on the new album or not remains to be seen, but it is available for a listen below.

Let the sounds take you away below.

Love is an experience and understanding shared by two people going throughout life together, living in the present, making memories, and being completely engulfed in the moment. However, the Ventura, CA crooner, KYLE, and Oakland, CA songstress, Kehlani, fear that the world's next generation of kids will interpret love by the number of likes on their Instagram picture. Their new song, "Just A Picture", KYLE explains to FADER, "was inspired by the fear that there will be a 'selfie class' in middle school 20 years from now. Our kids grow up thinking that liking someone means double tapping their picture." The important message is accompanied by a funky pop beat produced by Sunny Norway and Ben Free. Enjoy below!
