Murda Beatz drops Quarantine Pack; New music with YNW Melly, Lil Durk, PartyNextDoor
Murda Beatz has been making the most of his time during this period of self-isolating, and appears to be on the verge of releasing a new project.
His latest single, “Banana Split” with YNW Melly (featuring Lil Durk) was released in late March, and the lyric video has racked up more than 740K streams. Melly remains incarcerated after turning himself in on a double-murder charge back in Feb. 2019.
And last week, the Erie, Ontario-native joined PartyNextDoor on the PLAYERS NTWRK Twitch channel on Friday to raise money for COVID-19 related charities. During the stream, the pair shared their new collaboration “Good Crazy” which should be out in the near future. Over 280K people tuned in for the Twitch stream.
Murda also produced four songs with Cardiak on PND’s new albumPARTYMOBILE including the first two songs “Another Day” and “Turn Up,” as well as “Another Day.”
“With all the fear people are living in and the epidemic itself, it’s a great time to be making music and being creative,” Murda Beatz recently told XXL from his home in Los Angeles.
“It’s a lot of inspiration cause shit like this isn’t gonna happen all the time, so you just gotta take advantage of it.”
Murda also provided XXL with some insight on other project too look out for that he’s involved with:
“I want to wok with Beyoncé, I want to work with Rihanna. Me and Justin Bieber have some stuff, but I want to work more in depth with him, too. And there’s a bunch of rappers I want to work with, but it’ll come. What I really wanna do is find my own artist and build them up. That’s the next step.”
Along with the new music, Murda Beatz has released his first drum kit with the producer platform Splice.
Quarantine Pack is a series of instrumentals created by Murda Beatz to inspire up-and-coming producers during this period of quarantining and self-isolating. Even better, the proceeds from the Quarantine Pack downloads will go towards COVID-19 relief efforts, something he’s shown he feels quite strongly about.
You can find the Quarantine Pack on Splice.
Quarantine Pack has received a co-sign from some huge producers including Canadians Boi-1da, Sevn Thomas, WondaGurl, as well as Timbaland, Scott Storch and others.
