Fresh off the release of his debut project Drug Dealing Is A Lost Art, viral music sensation RMR has tapped Young Thug for the remix to his undeniable and country-tinged “Rascal” single, originating from Rascal Flatts’ “Bless The Broken Road”.

It’s fitting that Thugger is featured — he was one of the first hip-hop artists to fully embrace infusing his tracks with the country-inspired sonics. You listen to a song like 2017’s “Family Don’t Matter” from Beautiful Thugger Girls and you can hear the solid foundation that the generational artist laid for RMR and even Lil Nas X. On “Rascal”‘s remix, Thug delivers a timely verse centered around police brutality matching RMR’s chorus of, “F*ck 12, f*ck 12.”

“Chasin’ these blue strips, often elusive/ ‘Member since nuisances, they label us with they two cents/ Recruiters to shooters, they harassin’ us, all pursuin’/ Ride for what’s right, the news reporters, they lootin’, man/ Illusion, propaganda, they even try to break us down and point guns with our hands up,” Thug raps, painting a vivid picture of what the current Black Lives Matter movement is protesting about nationwide.

After debuting the Future and Lil Baby remix to “Dealer”, the mysterious ski-masked musician detailed what to expect from his EP. “With this first project, I’m putting it out to kind of understand not exactly what I’ll be in the future but what you’re gonna hear in the future as I grow as an artist.”

He also detailed his first introduction to country music. “I was introduced to country music around 13. I found it myself to be honest. It was playing on one of those public access television shows, and I just kept hearing it. I must have fallen asleep and it just kept going on and on and on. I guess that’s how I got hooked on it. My dad used to always play — who was it, Garth Brooks? He would always play him in the car and I thought it was wack but then later, when I got a little older, everything came back around and it was cool.”
