CMG The Label has released its highly-anticipated new compilation album Gangsta Art, which is available to stream on all platforms via CMG Records/Interscope.
The album boasts a combination of mega collaborations and solo tracks from CMG CEO Yo Gotti and the esteemed record label’s All-Star roster that includes Moneybagg Yo, Blac Youngsta, EST Gee, 42 Dugg, GloRilla, Blocboy JB, Mozzy, Lil Poppa, Big Boogie, Lehla Samia and 10Percent. It also includes special appearances from Kodak Black, Coi Leray, BIG30, and more.
Beyond showcasing CMG’s heavyweight talent, Gangsta Art also highlights the rising stars of the label, with new music from GloRilla on the song “Tomorrow” as well as R&B songstress Lehla Samia’s collaboration with EST Gee on “Hood Rich.” Additionally, Big Boogie shines on “Keke” and “Meant Dat” while 10Percent showcases his skills alongside Moneybagg Yo on “Major Pain.”
The project also includes the recently-released “Steppas,” which features hard-hitting verses from Gotti, Moneybagg, Blac Youngsta, EST Gee, 42 Dugg, and Mozzy. It also includes Gotti, Moneybagg, Mozzy and Lil Poppa’s collaborative effort on “Big League,” which was tapped as the official song of the 2022 NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and the Boston Celtics.
The new release also coincides with the long-awaited return of “Yo Gotti & Friends Birthday Bash 8” that will take place tonight, July 15 at FedEx Forum in Memphis, TN. Earlier this week, Gotti announced that Lil Uzi Vert would serve as one of the special guest performers at the show.
Fans can stream the show at 8 pm CT on the Amazon Music channel on Twitch, where Gotti and a surprise array of counterparts and collaborators will perform at the 8th installment of his acclaimed celebration.
Gangsta Art comes shortly after Gotti and the CMG label were featured on the cover of Billboard in May, where they were crowned “The Hardest-Working Label in Hip-Hop.”
