Soulja Boy “Hml” is the opening track on his new EP, No Sleep, an aptly titled project considering it arrived only one week after a full-length from the prolific rapper.
The most melodic of the 5-track release, it seems to bear the influence of Rae Sremmurd’s Swae Lee, using a similarly dreamy croon that offsets the hard beat with a hint of sweetness.
It’s been over ten years since “Crank Dat” hit No. 1 on the Hot 100, and Soulja has found a comfortable lane making music for his core fans, this new release being no exception.
If you’re someone who continues to find gems in the ever-growing catalog of the Atlanta rapper, as you should, stream the track below and check out his new album: Best To Ever Do It. Quotable Lyrics:I just put water on me, freeze me.

OMB Peezy Releases New Song “Soulja Life Mentality”
OMB Peezy is one voice in the current generation of rap that doesn’t get the credit he deserves.
He made a great introduction to the masses in October with the release of his Humble Beginnings EP and followed that with a collaborative project with Sherwood Marty, Young & Reckless.
The rapper shared his single “Fuck My P.O.” at the beginning of April and today, he delivers his new single “Soulja Life Mentality.”
While he grew up in Alabama, he’s been living in Sacramento and both regional sounds bleed through in his music.
On “Soulja Life Mentality,” the production on the track has a evident west coast influence while his vocals carry the Southern influence.
Then charge me with resistance When they told me to throw my hands up.
Soulja Boy Gets Back To What He Does Best On “Band Up”
It seems like nearly a lifetime ago since Soulja Boy was in the news every day, promoting his never-to-be-delivered album Draco and his never-to-be-fought boxing match with Chris Brown.
In reality, it was just a year back, but was followed by an uncharacteristically long hiatus by the rapper.
In January, the break ended with the release of “Turn On The Stove,” a return to Soulja’s catchy low-stakes Atlanta rap style.
“Bands Up” continues in that tradition, giving fans the instantly satisfying braggy rap track that SB does so well.
Soulja has announced a new project called Soulja Season that is expected to be released in the near future.
It’s unclear whether or not “Bands Up” will appear there or is just another loosie on the way to the tape.
We might just throw on Soulja’s underrated gem of an album, 2010’s The Deandre Way.
