Currently, 42 Dugg is sailing from the release of his latest project Young & Turnt, Vol. 2, which sees 14 hard hitting tracks from the Detroit rising star. The project follows last year’s breakout project Young and Turnt, which saw 12 hard-hitting cuts and features from Peewee Longway, Tee Grizzley, Blac Youngsta and more.

Looking to keep the momentum going, he delivers a new visual from the project for “Not A Rapper,” which features assistance from both of his label bosses — 4PF’s Lil Baby and CMG’s Yo Gotti. An instant standout, the Southside-produced cut sees the collaborators keeping things very street in regards to subject matter:

“N***as really bitches on whatever I’m feelin’, next n***a mention my name, I’ll kill him/

And y’all ain’t the same, I’m different, I hit his man, he trippin’/

N***a, f*** these b***hes, nah, f*** y’all n***as, hit my n***a Baby for the G behind the PM/

Five outta nine, I done hit a n***a BM, I bet whatever on the team, f*** a re-up/

These n***as h***, half of ‘em wanna be us, pull his b***h right in his face, that be us/”

The music video comes courtesy of Ikoneq Films and showcases stacks of money, jewelry, a line of Phantoms, in-studio and club footage and more. It’s a great sign of success for an artist who has risen out of trouble to flourish within hip hop culture. Just last month, 42 Dugg was released from jail following an arrest from a gun charge based upon his alleged appearance at a gun range last November. His legal team was able to get him freed on the basis that the current Coronavirus epidemic made his incarceration “unconscionable.”
