Earlier this week, we brought Booth readers Back to the Money, the lead single off B.G.‘s 11th studio album, Too Hood 2 Be Hollywood... or was it? Uh, as it turns out, it wasn’t – now it seems that Baby Gangster is rolling with this track, My Hood as the official selection. Here, the rapper reunites with a familiar face from his Cash Money days; Mannie Fresh delivers a bombastic synth-brass beat befitting hood royalty, and the New Orleans emcee matches his past collaborator’s infectiously cheery fanfare with three exultant verses, putting a philanthropic spin on the previous selection’s “big money/back like I never left” theme. This magnanimous street anthem’s light, feel-good vibe is appealing, but the question remains: was the single switch for the best? Judging by the polarized Booth reader and staff reviews BttM received, we can expect a healthy debate. Whichever track you prefer, though, you’re sure to find more to your liking on B.G.‘s 11th studio album when it hits stores and online retailers November, 24.
