Bo$ Clique’s B3auu and Tha Buddah Abusah drop new summer jam titled “Road Turns”

Hamilton, ONOriginally published July 17, 2015B3auu and Tha Buddah Abusah (formerly known as EJ Grant) of the Bo$ Clique crew recently teamed up to bring us this fresh new summer jam titled “Road Turns.”

“Road Turns” is all about the progression of life. Our guys come in over top of one of B3auu’s classic Bo$ beats (which brilliantly samples Diana Ross’ “Missing You” – BY THE WAY). B3auu and Buddah walk us through a series of life decisions. They’re preaching staying in the moment and enjoying what they’ve worked for. But they’re also eyeing up the future and planning their life paths around the road turns. Check it out below.

The Bass6 release remix of Roy Wood$ and Drake’s new track, “Drama”

Toronto, ON – SmashMouth Music Group production-DJ duo The Bass6 just released a fresh new remix of Roy Wood$’ Drake-assisted release titled “Drama.” It’s only been a week since the original premiered on the first episode of OVO Sound Radio on Beats 1 Radio. After dropping that “Sweeterman” remix and his and Skepta’s remix of Wizkid’s “Ojuelegba” earlier in the show, Drizzy dropped this new Roy Wood$ song.

The Bass6 took that original CMPLX beat and flipped it into much more of an atmospheric EDM beat. That, and they added in the filthiest drumline ever. This flip was completely unexpected. And it slaughters. Check it out below.
