Phil Adé is planning to release his new mixtape Respect Due later this year. As a teaser, the DMV rapper drops off "Soon as I Get On" featuring Mya today.

"Soon as I Get On" is built upon soulful production from Kal Banx, where Phil rhymes about the struggles of being an up-and-coming rapper and waiting on his time to shine. In the opening verse he spits, "AC broke we livin' on our toes/More fans at my crib than at my shows." Mya adds color on the hook with her soft, impactful voice, singing, "I'm here to take what's mine/I got too much on the line, to let it slide/Cus I've been on the road/But I still got far to go/And I'll hold you down as soon as I get on."

Although Phil Adé has rapped about prospering in the past, this introspective record is a nice change of pace. Check out "Soon as I Get On" below.
