Following a busy first half of 2020 producing tracks on Lil Baby’s My Turn, Lil Wayne’s Funeral and more, Murda’s second single of the year as a solo artist is a spacious and summertime feel-good anthem that leaves room for his features to shine in their own right.
To commemorate this new release, Murda has also unveiled an exclusive collaboration with the premiere art toy brand Kidrobot and Loot Launcher to create a limited-run 8” skeleton figure priced at $85.00. “It’s an amazing opportunity to see something that was on a T-shirt, come to life as something tangible,” said Murda Beatz. “This will be the first figurine of me to ever exist, it just feels like a monumental achievement for me!” This is an exclusive figure and limited edition with preorder available on August 3rd at 10am PDT on Kidrobot’s site.

“Historically, Questlove & BlackThought have always been very active participants in the voting process; however, I felt that it was imperative that this year I open up both The Roots and my Live Nation Urban platforms as vehicles for both voter education and voter registration,” said Shawn Gee, The Roots manager and President of Live Nation Urban, “Our goal is to aggressively impact change and we’re going to have some fun while doing so. This year, we are incredibly proud to partner with Mrs. Obama’s When We All Vote to ensure our audience has the resources they need to register and vote in November’s election.”
“As we face one of the most challenging years for our nation, we could all use a moment of inspiration and light to help focus on what we can do to take action together – and that action is voting. When We All Vote is on a mission to change the culture around voting and we are committed to closing the age and race gap of those who show up at the ballot box, increasing participation in each and every election,” said When We All VoteManaging Director of Communications and Culture Stephanie L. Young, “To change the culture means we have to be in the culture, and iconic events like The Roots Picnic, a celebration of the most influential artists of today, is just that.”
The partnership comes from a shared ethos of wanting to reach the most underrepresented community of people when it comes to voting, black people between the ages of 21-35. Michelle Obama’s When We All Vote and The Roots have a common goal: to educate and inspire communities to use their voices and vote to make a difference.
