After an extended run in the mixtape world, Reese LaFlare is ficially in album mode. The Atlanta native shares with Billboard that his anticipated self-titled debut album is on the way for 2018, and to coincide with the album announcement, the burgeoning rapper has decided to drop f the project's first single. "Drip Like That" finds Reese teaming up with fellow ATLien Gunna for a trippy tune, exclusively premiering on Billboard today (July 16).
LaFlare initially started developing a rapport with Gunna before the Drip Season rapper even picked up a mic. "I met Gunna a couple years ago at the studio with Young Thug] and he didn’t even rap at the time. They are all family to me so this song was a no-brainer," Reese tells Billboard. "Gunna and I are on the same frequency when it comes to music and fashion so the chemistry was already there for this one."
Reese's debut effort is lining up to be a star-studded affair, as Pusha-T, Young Thug, Ty Dolla $ign, Smokepurpp, Murda Beatz, Gunna, Yung Bans, and Vory are all slated to make appearances on the project.
"This album has been some time in the making. I think it defines me as a whole and shows how diverse I am," LaFlare says the album's creative direction. "I went back to my roots with this one so if you have been a fan since day one you are really going to appreciate it and also see my growth as an artist. I’m grown now and more seasoned so I’m excited for everybody to tune in."
