Raedio Reveals the Official Tracklist For the Upcoming Soundtrack, Featuring an All-Star Lineup of Artists Including Sexyy Red, Rico Nasty, Kaliii, Lady London & Many More
An incisive and comedic look inside the business of rap, Max Original Series RAP SH!T follows two women as they attempt to conquer the rap game while remaining true to themselves. Tapping into a recent renaissance, Rap Sh!t: The Mixtape (Soundtrack from the Max Original Series, S2), out November 3rd via Raedio/Def Jam Recordings, is a showcase for the breadth and diversity of talented women taking over the rap game in 2023. Raedio shares “He Can’t Reach,” a collaboration between Brooklyn rising star Maiya The Don and North Texas heavyweight Enchanting, which kicks off the soundtrack on an energetic high note.
Produced by YA & Stacks of The Breed, the same duo who produced the first RAP SH!T S2 single “No Panties” ft. Sexyy Red, “He Can’t Reach” is an anthem about knowing one’s worth, shutting down disrespect, and taking the initiative to get what’s deserved. Maiya The Don and Enchanting prove to be ideal sparring partners atop the insistent piano-led beat, the former’s booming voice and brash NYC attitude contrasting beautifully with the latter’s soft-spoken Southern swag. Written by Maiya, Enchanting, and songwriters Ricky Rich and A. Chic at Raedio’s Rap Sh!t Season 2 Soundtrack writing camp, the song is endlessly quotable, as both emcees serve up lines perfectly suited to be captions for flex-heavy IG grid posts: “If looks could kill, I’d put these b*tches in the coffin/Send n****s to the chiropractor every time I walk in,” spits Maiya The Don.
Following last week’s “No Panties,” “He Can’t Reach” arrives alongside the revelation of the star-studded Rap Sh!t: The Mixtape (Soundtrack from the Max Original Series, S2) tracklist. Compiled and released by Raedio, the “audio everywhere” company, the mixtape combines original music created for the series and performed by lead characters Shawna & Mia, new songs by trailblazers like Rico Nasty, red hot risers like Kaliii and Maiya The Don, and street-savvy upstarts like Enchanting and Cam & China. The tape features further appearances from a litany of notable names from all over the country, including Lady London, Omeretta The Great, Guapdad 4000, Cleotrapa, Ben Reilly, Slimeroni, Aleza, NCognita, TeaMarr, and more. With production from the likes of Danja, Bankroll Got It, and HitKidd, the new mixtape is a love letter to the women in rap who are changing the music world just by being themselves.
Raedio is committed to propelling the most culturally relevant series and projects and spotlighting not only emerging artists, but the contributors behind the scenes that make these amazing songs possible. The RAP SH!T Season 2 mixtape originated with a vibrant writing camp, hosted at Raedio’s studio in Los Angeles, which brought in dozens of artists and writers to help create an irrepressible vibe. Raedio highlighted the unique camp in a recent mini-doc, out now on Raedio’s YouTube.
For the mixtape artwork, Raedio paid tribute to the classic cover of Midnight Marauders by A Tribe Called Quest, one of the few covers in history that highlights the writers and producers that make magic behind the scenes.
Stay tuned for many more announcements about the soundtrack in the coming weeks and months.
RAP SH!T returns for its second season on November 9th, only on Max.
