Following last year’s “Pink Fur” single, Bed-Stuy’s own Manolo Rose comes back hard with his new release just in time for the summer, “I Get Money.”

The song itself, has a catchy ass hook that you can lean back to (or blast in the drop top) and it also samples the classic O’ Jays’ “For The Love Of Money”, which suits well with Manolo and director Nimi Hendrix’s vision to pay homage to some of New York City’s hustler themed films such as New Jack City (which also sampled the O’Jays classic for the movie), Paid In Full, and more.

Figg Newton – “Been Been Brackin” ft. Big Wy (@FiggNewton109)

Recently South Central rapper Figg Newton dropped the music video for his song, “Been Been Brackin” Ft Big Wy.

The single brings together the two well-respected street rappers for a song anyone in the streets can appreciate.

“The track was produced by L-Finguz out of Sacramento, CA who won Producer of the Year by Thizzler and he’s been setting the West on FIRE!” Figg Newton said.

The L-Finguz produced track comes along with a clothing line called FastLane that’s being released along with his recent string of video releases highlighting his South Central neighborhood.

“The clothing brand’s name Fastlane is a combination of a few things. Of course I’m from a section of South Central LA often referred to as the Lanes, but it also plays on the lifestyle I was raised living and it’s the fuel to the content of my music,”Figg Newton explained

The new song is housed on the new compilation The Woop Vol. 1. which is now available on all digital platforms showcasing talent in Figg’s community.

Despite his clear affiliation with South Central gang culture, Figg Newton is moving toward guidance and a positive message in his music for those that are caught up in the gang life needing inspiration.

“I have evolved overtime musically with the recording process and the business aspect. I’m paying close attention to the message that’s been sent in my music and I’ve definitely moved toward guidance and a positive message.”

In the Steezy Shotz directed visual, you can see Figg Newton doing his dance and Big Wy is posted up with his crew scoping the block. This visual is South Central LA to its core and if you love the West-Coast this is def worth the spins.
