Grand Hustle signee Yung LA has been carving out his own niche as pioneer of the “futuristic” hip-hop subgenre, and, judging by the success of his Ain’t I remix with Young Dro and T.I. (which has since been chosen as an official single) the rest of the world is starting to catch on. On his second single, the Atlanta native invites the ladies back to his spaceship for a little Futuristic Love. Singer Ricco Barrino (Fantasia‘s brother, previously featured on Propane) heightens the space-age ambience, while Nard & B deliver a laid-back instrumental that should help the cut blast off to the top of the charts! If Futuristic Love (Elroy) is really what rap jams are going to sound like in the years to come, will fans’ reactions be more, “Hooba-dooba-dooba!” or “Jane, stop this crazy thing?” Find out this summer, when Futuristic Leland hits record store shelves and online retailers, and check back with the Booth in early April for L.A.‘s exclusive interview with DJ “Z.”
