With the release of biopic Notorious, the buzz around the late Christopher Wallace is bigger than ever, and as a result we’ve seen an upswing in Biggie-sampling beats. The latest record to take production cues from the legendary emcee is Playaz Play, a star-studded ensemble cut from promoter/label head Uncle Luke of 2 Live Crew fame. Borrowing its title and hook from Big’s raunchy Bust a Nut, the record finds Luke and featured artists Pitbull, Ace Hood, Yungen (a Miami up-and-comer), Casely, and Billy Blue letting listeners know just how they play. With all the talent on display here, just about everyone should find something to like about Playaz Play, and Lu Diaz‘s minimal, synth-driven beat should ensure the record gets some play in the clubs. This teaser single will be included on a forthcoming release from Uncle Luke, the details of which are yet unannounced.
