On June 21, Los Angeles rap duo BlueBucksClan shares the flex-filled new single Just Hit Me. Listen via Out The Blue Records / Capitol Records is available. The unfiltered anthem is accompanied by a luxurious visual shot in and around one of the group’s live shows. “Just Hit Me” is the first new single from the group since March’s acclaimed EP See The Difference.
On “Just Hit Me,” pristine synth melodies are buoyed by a bouncy bassline and percussion deeply rooted in the West Coast rap tradition. DJ handles the first verse, spitting smoothly about the privileges his lifestyle affords him. “They let me look up in the back when I can’t find things,” he raps. “Wearing shit up out the store ain’t gotta iron these.” Jeeezy Obama, for his part, also celebrates his ascension to a life of luxury, detailing all the perks that such a rise entails. It’s another reminder of the casual brilliance of BlueBucksClan’s stylish bars.
Directed by LewisYouNasty, the video for “Just Hit Me” features shots of the California duo performing before rapturous crowds and hanging in fancy cars. It’s all tied together with inventive editing, which underscores how surreal the scale of their success can feel. Above all, the clip is a showcase of their effortless camaraderie and well-earned confidence.
With “Just Hit Me,” BlueBucksClan build on the momentum of recent projects like See the Difference and Clan Virus 2. The praise for the latter was overwhelming with Pitchfork calling them “L.A.’s best duo.” Complex and Billboard also recently hailed them as “Rappers to Watch.” BlueBucksClan have now amassed more than 177 million streams in the US alone – a number that’s sure to only grow with the arrival of singles like Just Hit Me.
