With the eleventh installment, the rappers each freestyled over Erykah Badu‘s “On & On” from the comfort of their own homes. The “RONA RAPS” video series, created by Guapdad himself, was formed during the coronavirus quarantine as a means of entertainment for his fans. “Since we are all locked up in the house dealing with this very serious but very shitty situation with the scare, I wanted to rap w/ my friends and entertain you guys,” Guapdad said. “So each week I’ll have a different artist friend or 2 or 3 hop on the same beat as me, selfie-style and rap. And then imma post em here.”
Previous installments of the series have seen lyricists like Joey Bada$$, Curren$y, Denzel Curry, Wiz Khalifa, and more appear. Four years following his previous album, Rashad recently returned with a new single called “Why Worry.” Although fans expect a new project from the TDE artist in 2020, there have been many obstacles preventing that from happening sooner. “You realize how critically-acclaimed don’t mean s–t,” the 25-year-old told Billboard after overcoming his struggles with drug addiction.
“It’s tight if you bounce back with something. If you don’t, you’re just a talented young n—a. I’m just a talented young n—a, at least that’s how it felt since I haven’t put nothing out since [Cilvia Demo in 2014], except like three songs,” he added. “In reality, for me, if things would have went exactly how I wanted them to go, it still would have happened. It would have been similar, but the things in between wouldn’t have been the same.”
