In this year of breakout singles, perhaps no single has been more important to an artist’s career than Maino‘s Hi Hater. Made with no guest verses whatsoever (a rarity with today’s hip-hop hits) the song quickly caught on and has helped his long-awaited debut album (now entitled If Tomorrow Comes…) finally receive a solid release date. However, if there’s one thing that the Brooklyn native wants to make clear, it’s that he has no plans of turning Hollywood anytime soon; after all, what could possibly beat that Hood Love? Despite saying “f**k a record deal,” Maino gets a strong lift from Atlantic labelmate Trey Songz on background vocals, but still manages to be the dominant voice over Chris Styles and Marcus D’Tray‘s mid-tempo, street-oriented production. Hood Love is the second single from If Tomorrow Comes…, available in stores and online September 23.
