After celebrating WrestleMania 34 with Ringside 6, Smoke DZA is shifting focus on his Not for Sale LP dropping on 4/20. This week, the Harlem spitter hits is with two records: “The Hook Up” with Girl Talk, DOM Kennedy and Dreamville’s Cozz, plus the soulful “The Love” featuring Taylor Gang’s Ty Dolla $ign.
“[When] creating this album Not For Sale, I wanted to not be stubborn but at the same time not compromise my sound,” DZA tells Billboard, who premiered the latter song. “Not for Sale is not selling out and compromising on what’s true to you. My inspiration comes from classic golden era rap and R&B so I wanted to give my fans the sound that inspired me. I linked with Relly Rell & Ty [Dolla $ign] and created a vibe for ‘The Love.’”
