Stream Yo Gotti’s New Album ‘The Art of Hustle’
Yo Gotti's star is riding high thanks in large part to his smash single and ode to social media hollering "Down in the DM." Off the strength of that single, and its hilarious star-studded video, Gotti drops his fifth major label album, The Art of Hustle, his first since 2013's I Am.
While Gotti offered up the K. Michelle-assisted "My City" late last week, fans of the Memphis rapper can enjoy The Art of Hustle in its entirety below courtesy of Spotify. Additional album features are made by Lil Wayne, Future, E-40, Pusha T, 2 Chainz, Timbaland and Nicki Minaj, who jumped on a "Down in the DM" remix earlier this month.
Gotti last graced the streets with a new project back in November when he dropped his CM8 mixtape. A few months prior, he had released The Return. On The Art of Hustle though, Gotti is at his most polished, rapping about his city's violent state with a sobering somberness while simultaneously ramping up the energy. "Down in the DM" though represents the rapper's largest crossover hit, evidenced by the fact that both the original and remix get shine on the album.
In a January interview with XXL, Gotti said of the success of "Down in the DM," "Just across the nation, it’s connecting people. I had a lot of records that connected people fast. I just think the context of what it’s about and the time we’re living in, it was the record that needed to be made right now. I happened to be the one that made it."
