BlocBoy JB and Tay Keith pay homage to Ice Cube and Mike Epps’ iconic characters from the early aughts comedy staples Next Friday and Friday After Next on the new collaborative single “Day Day N Craig.”
Arriving just over a year after the release of BlocBoy’s debut album FatBoy, “Day Day N Craig” marks the third collaboration from the Memphis artists, following 2018’s Drake-featuring “Look Alive” and 2020’s “No Chorus, Pt. 12.”
The new track is also BlocBoy’s latest to pay tribute to a pair of influential personalities, as it comes on the heels of last year’s “Bronny & Bron.”
Earlier this month, Tay Keith became an honorary professor at his alma mater Middle Tennessee State University.
The Grammy-nominated producer took to Instagram to celebrate the achievement, posting photos of himself in a recording studio speaking with young people and holding his honorary certificate.
“From the days I was struggling in class failing trying to get candidacy for the college of recording industry to coming back and becoming a honorary professor show you that hard work with passion pay off,” he captioned the post. “S/O my alma mater acknowledging me and my team and letting me come educate and motivate the youngins who in the same shoes i was in just a few years ago. Respect always been some thats earned and it aint given and real ones always win in the end.”
