28-year-old rapper EST Gee first broke into the mainstream with his 2020 mixtape Ion Feel Nun. A few months later, its follow-up I Still Don’t Feel Nun arrived. Three more mixtapes, countless collabs with heavy-hitters like Future and Young Thug, and one deal with Yo Gotti’s Collective Music Group and Interscope Records later, EST Gee has delivered the next chapter of his story — his debut studio album, I Never Felt Nun.
The 21-track project features Jeezy, Machine Gun Kelly, Future, and EST Gee’s fellow Louisville, Kentuckians Bryson Tiller and Jack Harlow. EST Gee dropped the video for his single with Jack, “Backstage Passes,” today along with the album. Directed by Cole Bennett, the video is flashy, brash, and charismatic, throwing Jack and Gee against a canvas of primary colors. See the video for yourself above.
Kiana Ledé, “Irresponsible”
R&B princess Kiana Ledé is back with new single “Irresponsible.” Kiana’s harmonies float effortlessly atop a beat that’s reminiscent of early 2000s R&B anthems. The vocalist calls out an ex-lover in the lyrics, crafting this song specifically for those who have known the push-and-pull of an intoxicating situationship: “Oh, so irresponsible / Making me fall, fall head first for you / You let me set my feelings on the loose / Knowing deep down you wouldn’t follow through… You could’ve left mе alone but it’s cool / Baby, there’s somе sh*t that you just don’t do.” Period. Listen to “Irresponsible” above.
