Offset recruits Hit-Boy for the first song since TakeOff’s death

Offset has attached to Hit-Boy to release his first song since Departures died last November.

The lively club anthem, “2 Live”, serves as a direct contrast to Quavo’s somber solo track “Without You,” which he released last week. Offset’s bouncy track instead finds Hit-Boy rapping about his fun experience at the club, while Migos member spits about a late-night love interest who is “going crazy.”

The new number comes after Hit teased the collaboration on social media earlier this week as he looks to keep his 2022 hot streak alive.

It also follows the manufacturer’s recent announcement that he is working on one joint album with R&B legend Musiq Soulchild called Victims and villainswhich will be released later this year.

“2 Live” will likely appear on Offset’s upcoming solo album, which he delayed out of respect for TakeOff, which was shot and killed outside a bowling alley in Houston, Texas November 1st. It follows Set’s previously released singles “54321” and “CODE”. Moneybag Yo.

The upcoming project will serve as the follow-up to his 2019 solo debut Father of 4which debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200.

During an interview with SENSE last August, Offset went into detail about what his still-untitled LP sounds like, which he previously confirmed on Twitter will clock in at 13 tracks.

“This is just the beginning,” he explained. “It’s just the gutter and the core, from the heart. I got a lot of different flows on it. I rap, even though I see a lot of the artists today, they like auto-tune. A lot. I feel like I’m not on at all that wave.

“When I came in, we came out of the trenches, so that’s what people want to hear because that’s what people go through every day. Doesn’t anyone drive a Wraith.”

He added:[In] Black culture right now, and the world in general, the poor outweigh the rich by a thousand percent. So you have to talk about crap that goes on in real life. Just the real content of what people see every day. Get back to it.”

“Changed music culture forever, you did it Take,” Offset said while holding back tears. “You changed that flow. That flow came from Take, the originator. The originator of that flow. He changed the music.”

He continued: “Lord give us the strength, give us the strength, the family and everyone, give us the strength. I don’t want to question God, but I just don’t understand”.
