If I had a dollar for every rapper that boldly proclaimed that they’re Bout That Life I’d probably be smoking my very own brand of cigars with Warren Buffett and Jay-Z in The Maldives right about now. While Atlanta crooner Verse Simmonds and Atlantic Records’ new Senior VP of A&R Young Jeezy are two artists who are in fact about that life, it’s the leading lady in Simmonds’ latest record who’s really Bout That Life. Maybe it’s the Atlanta connection or the unique pairing of Jeezy’s gruff lyricism and Simmonds’ silky vocals, but the two artists mesh together perfectly on the single. Atlanta beatsmith Nate Qwest keeps Bout That Life upbeat and ready for the club thanks to his synth-driven production. Bout That Life will be featured on the Southern songster’s Sex, Love & Hip-Hop 2.0 mixtape, which is due out on September 14.
