BlueBucksClan continue their reign as leaders of Los Angeles’ rap renaissance with their quietly flexing new single and video for “Horace Grant.” After their meteoric rise in 2020, the duo of DJ and Jeeezy return to remind the competition that no one can deliver more nonchalant confidence or match their deadpan humor. “Horace Grant” is out today via Out the Blue Records. Listen to the Tevo LaRon directed video here. “Horace Grant” is the first single off their forthcoming Clan Virus 2 mixtape.
“Horace Grant” reaffirms BlueBucksClan’s remarkable chemistry. They trade straight-faced bars like basketball teammates running a fastbreak, often no-look passing the mic for one line at a time. Backed by piano keys and crashing percussion, the duo rap about the extravagance and romance their growing success affords them. After they trade countless rhymes, DJ closes the track by referencing the bespectacled NBA legend who gives the song its name: “BucksClan we can’t lose, I’m the quarterback / Gabbana frames on my face, feel like Horace Grant.”
“Horace Grant” follows BlueBucksClan’s incredible 2020. Thanks to the pair’s dark humor, hypnotic beats, and tireless work ethic, they racked up over 50 million U.S. streams grabbing the attention of critics and fellow artists alike. In addition to co-signs from DJ Mustard, Saweetie, and Shoreline Mafia, BlueBucksClan have been praised by SPIN, Elevator, and Pitchfork, who called them L.A.’s best duo. This year, Complex included them on their “Rappers to Watch in 2021” list and Billboard included them on their “6 LA Rappers to Watch in 2021” list. With more music like “Horace Grant” coming soon, DJ and Jeeezy are poised to continue their winning ways.
