Atlanta and Compton connect when YFN Lucci links up with West Coast crooner Garren for the new track “You Know That.” Released just yesterday (May 18), Lucci adds a touch grit to Garren’s smooth R&B single. The Think It’s A Game signees reminisce on their rise from the streets and self-made status.
“Fuck nigga where your guns at?/Fuck nigga where your nuts at?/I got the dope stuffed in my nut sack/Young nigga from the neighborhood/But we ain’t really have much at/I ain’t really have to touch that/Uncle told me don’t rush it,” rhymes Lucci in the second verse.
“‘You Know That’ was made for the winners who have doubters that don’t want you to prosper,” explained Garren upon the single’s release. “It’s hard to do good in the hood because poverty stricken areas are filled with people who may try to stop you simply because they can’t see themselves in the position you’re aiming for.”
YFN Lucci is no stranger to defying the odds and turning tragedy into triumph. The ATL spitter delivered emotional bars on his last project Long Live Nut EP, which he dropped back in April. The rapper dedicated the short project to his late friend and overall mentor Nut, who passed away in 2015. Seems like perfect timing for this new single to drive home the message.
