The rapper released his new single, "Lay Wit Ya," off his forthcoming LP, The House Is Burning. According to a press release, he expressed, "this album was difficult. I love music, but I don’t like to say s***. It’s almost like a game for me. It’s like working out. I don’t want to be redundant. Redundancy in general bothers me. Any song that I make, I usually make it in about 30 minutes to an hour, and that’s it. My ideas come to me immediately."
Futhermore, Rashad revealed, "music is where I go to express myself. It’s what I do to close a chapter. You know what’s crazy? I’m not even ashamed to say it… I really think my albums aren’t different from each other. Eventually, one of my albums will become a classic. I just love this s***. It’s me."
Typically known for being introspective, "Lay Wit Ya" is more of a pregame anthem. With outside opening back up, we're sure to hear many quoting the bar, "Last year, you was my b****, now you my baby girl." Stream the "Lay Wit Ya" visual above. The House Is Burning has no confirmed release date, but fans are anticipating a summertime drop.
