Los Angeles rap duo BlueBucksClan are back with a new single “FYM,” a track laced with quippy wordplay, icy flows, in West Coast style. The song is out via The Blue Records/Capitol Records.
Accompanying the track is an equally stylish new video that finds Jeeezy Obama and DJ hitting the streets of New York City. The cinematic visual was directed by Won Ton-shot.
Bouncing over subdued synths and insistent hi-hats, Jeeezy Obama kicks things off by detailing the high-roller lifestyle: “Think I’m finna pull these Christians out, get the Lord involved/ You see my b___h a ninety nine, that’s her overall.” DJ matches his energy, serving up his own constellation of casually outlandish flexes: “I heard y’all was in the club, but I didn’t notice y’all/ Ain’t getting searched, told the homies ‘Let me hold em all’/ I done rolled more ’woods than a bowling ball.”
Shot in the Big Apple, the slick video sees BlueBucksClan kick it in a Manhattan studio and, when not laying down their verses, they hit the streets as they flaunt jewelry and soak up the energy of the city. Exuberant, playful, and subtly menacing, “FYM” is an exercise in inimitable style. It’s also the latest reminder of why BlueBucksClan are one of the most exciting duos California has to offer.
“FYM” builds on the momentum of “Just Hit Me,” an equally mesmerizing single that finds Jeeezy Obama and DJ letting loose their dexterous flows and wordplay. That particular track was preceded by See the Difference and Clan Virus 2, projects that further cemented the chemistry that propelled them into the spotlight. Praise for the latter was overwhelming, with Pitchfork calling them “L.A.’s best duo.” Complex and Billboard also hailed them as “Rappers to Watch.” To date, BlueBucksClan have accumulated more than 180 million streams in the US alone.
