The Philly rapper is here to make a statement with his upcoming project.
In 2017, PnB released his debut studio album titled 'Catch These Vibes', with features from Russ, A Boogie Wit da Hoodie, Wiz Khalifa, Juicy J, Smokepurpp, Lil Yachty, Roy Woods, and more. The rapper mostly known for his song “Selfish” which peaked on the Billboard Hot 100 at 51, plans to do the uncommon that only a few other legends like Tupac, Notorious B.I.G., and Drake have done. In June, PnB revealed his forthcoming project, 'TrapStar Turnt PopStar', would be a double album which means it would have a Side A and Side B which we came forward with on Twitter.
PnB Rock recently talked to Zane Lowe on the World Record on Apple Music’s Beats 1 radio show, to discuss his new single with Lil Skies and his upcoming album, where he broke some really interesting industry news.
According to PnB Rock, he has lined up some high-profile collaborations, including verses by Tee Grizzley, Quavo, and the late XXXTentacion in this double-sided masterpiece. PnB Rock said he's sitting on two unreleased tracks with XXXTentacion, including one which will make the cut on his new album 'Trap Star Turned Pop Star'. According to PnB, he recorded his music with XXXTentacion in the studio, before the rap star was gunned down in Deerfield Beach, Florida on June 18, 2018.
"We just had a few sessions where we just vibed out, you know what I'm saying," PnB Rock revealed. "Me and him we created beats, we sung over those beats, we made melodies over those beats and then we just critiqued different songs." According to PnB, he also has plans to release his second song with XXXTentacion at a later date. "If I put this song out five years down the line, it's still gonna be the same vibe. It's still gonna be the same type of response, you feel me," PnB Rock said.
PnB Rock's new album Trap Star Turned Pop Star is slated to hit stores in May.
