Download Isaiah Rashad - Lay Wit Ya ft. Duke Deuce Mp4
When quality-over-quantity rap label Top Dawg Entertainment teased a new release last week, most fans’ minds went right to the label’s heaviest hitters, Kendrick Lamar and SZA.
But there was a smaller, vocal subsection of followers clamoring for new music from Chattanooga rapper Isaiah Rashad, who near-disappeared after releasing his debut album, The Sun’s Tirade, in 2016. Turns out they were right — today brings a new Rashad song, “Lay Wit Ya,” the lead single off his long-awaited sophomore album, The House Is Burning.
“Lay Wit Ya” is a surprising party track from a rapper known for his more interior, emotional work; in a new cover story, Rashad told the Fader, “I just wanted this shit to sound fun.” The song comes with an energetic feature from Memphis rapper Duke Deuce and a post-pandemic party dream of a music video.
