Let’s preface this by saying Future has the chorus game on smash. Wether you understand what the man says or not, the Atlanta MC has the recipe for hit records. Cite Lil Wayne’s “Good Kush & Alcohol” as the latest sign of proof. And he scores big yet again on “Cee-Lo,” the first single from DJ Scream’s forthcoming album Long Live The Hustle.
Future isn’t solely responsible for the track’s hit potential, though. In fact, “Cee-Lo” is far from a one man show since it also features Wale and Ludacris. Each rapper does the song proper justice, but it’s Chris Bridges who anchors the record with one of his best verses in recent memory. The bars are complimented with a beat layered with synths and knocking drums, courtesy of producer 808 Mafia.
Long Live The Hustle will see its proper release some time this year on the Maybach Music Group imprint, where the Scream serves as the label’s resident DJ. The project has been a long time coming, considering that we heard “Hood Rich Anthem” last year.
