Rich Homie Quan’s name recently appeared on Young Thug’s Halloween-themed Slime Season 2 mixtape–something many weren’t expecting after their dissolution. This seemingly small bit of information is actually crucial to the story of Quan and Thug because these two once sparring partners haven’t collaborated on a new track since their Rich Gang days. And although the track in question (“Never Made Love”) is an oldie, as well–recorded during those pivotal RG days–its appearance on Young Thug’s latest mixtape could hint at future collaborations between the two Atlanta rappers. However, Quan does have a new solo track with “Carlito”, a track that’s produced by Goose (also one of Thug’s main collaborators), and it’s a solid number overall that potentially hints at what his forthcoming debut album may sound like. Hit the play button on Rich Homie Quan’s “Carlito” after the jump.

Back in August, Fabolous released a loosie track — entitled ”Gone for the Winter” — and he’s kept quiet since. Fittingly, just as the temperature’s rising, Fab is back with the heat the fans desperately needed. Teaming up with Atlanta’s Rich Homie Quan, Fabolous goes full Dead Presidents in the visuals for ”We Good” — a track that first appeared on his Young OG Project last year. Additionally, the grim visuals (featuring face paint and shootouts) are apt for Halloween, which is tomorrow! Fab has also teased at the notion of dropping a new project, Summertime Shootout, but we’ve yet to hear anything from that. In the meantime, check out Fabolous’ ”We Good” video featuring Rich Homie Quan after the jump.
