SMT Family Artist, The Legendary Quaine teams up wit CMG CEO, Yo Gotti on his latest single, Cut, Flip & Move

LEGENDARY QUAINEWashington DC native, Legendary Quaine is preparing to make a major impact in World of Hip-Hop. Born and raised on the mean streets of Washington DC, Quaine has two options to choose from and he chose music as his option. Inside of one of America’s wickedest societies, he embraces the important parts of life and learns how to reach other like-minded individuals.

 “I’ve adapted to rough terrain, overcame some tumultuous emotions, and faced harsh obstacles.”

For nearly a decade, Quaine prepares for the year 2020. His vision is clear and his sights are on nothing but the prize. In the single, “Cut Flip & Move,” we get a sample of things in the form of a standout record featuring Yo Gotti. Gotti delivers a menacing hook, followed by a perfectly crafted depiction of street dealings on verse one. Powerful violin strings rain over a thunderous bassline and money machines as Gotti gives us a stellar performance with conviction. What feels like a long-awaited return, the two are presenting heat on their first collaborative effort. Their sound is so intriguing, they both share authenticity in both of their lyrics.

Currently, “Cut Flip & Move” is streaming exclusively on SMTFAMiLY.COM where you can also check out new winter merch!
