We just received our first taste of Buddy’s upcoming debut studio album.
On Thursday, the 24-year-old rapper dropped off his much-anticipated record “Black” featuring Harlem’s ASAP Ferg with production by Jahaan Sweet. The cut marks Buddy’s first official release since his 2017 EP Magnolia. And, as its title suggests, the cut is a celebratory anthem about rappers’ personal triumphs as well as those of black America.
“I feel like Trayvon with this black hoodie on / Huey P. Newton / Black Revolution / I’m with a Nubian queen and some illegal aliens / I got a black fist balled up and it ain’t just me, it’s all of us,” the Compton rapper spits.
The single is available now on iTunes and Apple Music.
According to Buddy’s team, “Black” will appear on his first full-length album under RCA Records. Though the project’s official title has yet to be announced, we can expect it to drop sometime this summer.
Buddy is gearing up to join Joey Badass on the 31-date Amerikkkana Tour. The North American trek will kick off April 17 in Boston and will conclude May 26 in Montreal. You can check out the full tour schedule below and find ticket information here.
