A celebration of excess and spitting new slang.

Birdman and Young Thug's "Bit Back" video is here, and it perfectly captures everything we could possibly want from the two Cash Money entities.

You know why we love Young Thug? It's because when he raps he seemingly pulls melodies out of thin air, creating a deep tapestry of sounds.

Plus, he's unbelievably charismatic. You know why we love Birdman? He's blunt, he's remained a constant presence, and he rubs his hands together better than anybody. Plus, he's unapologetically Birdman.

Over an 808 Mafia production, "Bit Back" has us more excited than we thought possible for Rich Gang's upcoming Rich Gang 2: The Lifestyle album. It's refreshing that, for an artist like Thug who seems to run into compromise and opposition more than most, he just completely cuts free here. Plus Birdman embracing his age and "last man standing" designation is a compelling evolution of his pen-game.
