Here’s the first new track Cashmere and I have recorded since our Beats and Rhymes project dropped almost two years ago. In a way, we’re picking up right where we left off – dope beats, dope rhymes. But a lot’s changed since our last album; the most significant change is the passing of Cash’s father, which he addresses for the first time in “I Know.” This is a special track for both of us, as Cashmere tackles important personal and social issues while we continue what we started.

“I don’t play by the old school rules,” Hus Kingpin states as he navigates his way through Los Angeles, where he recently relocated after leaving NYC. Expect product on the regular, as Hus not only believes in dropping songs and mixtapes on a frequent basis, but also that holding songs in the stash will only lead to him eventually hating the song. From working with his #TheWinners crew to earning the respect of vets like Roc Marciano and Agallah, Hus Kingpin has been taking all the necessary steps to be a household name this year and for years to come, as he’s currently balancing projects with the Snowgoons and Audible Doctor. In this exclusive interview with ProfileWild, Hus breaks down his music, his creative process, his thoughts on Joey Bada$$ and J.Cole’s recent albums, why he’s got the respect of the younger generation and the vets, and much more.

Now, Fabolous is contributing a verse to the French Montana remix of “Trap Queen.” Listen after the jump.
