Of COURSE, we have to bring you the project as well…Check out the official line on the release below:

Jim Jones has reunited with DJ Drama for a new Gangsta Grillz mixtape called We Set The Trends distributed through #VLrecords Empire. Never missing a beat, the legendary rapper delivers an exciting project with Hip Hop’s finest including household names like Migos, Dave East, Fabolous, Maino to the newcomers Fivio Foreign, Rah Swish, Dusty Locane, Ditta, and more.

The project marks the duo’s first collaboration since 2006’s The Seven Day Theory. The album is a perfect mix of regional sounds but stays true to the raw New York lyricism. As always, Jim gives us heavy bars with his profound storytelling rhymes.

“Working with Drama has always been fun,” exclaims Jones, “We had to get back to what we were doing when we were younger; 25 tracks of pure heat!”

The title track “We Set The Trends” by Ft Migos is now streaming over 5 million streams. Gangsta Grillz – We Set The Trends is streaming now on all platforms.

And to wrap it up, here’s the video to the title track featuring the Migos. EVERYTHING about this project is fire!!!
