Multi-platinum rapper Sage The Gemini has collaborated with buzz-worthy Yhung T.O. for his newest track out today, “Hoop Dreams”. Listen here! The single features a tinging back beat, rolling lyrics, and Yhung T.O. adding his flair to the track. Sage raps, “My mama wanted me to be a baller but I ball a different way.”
Pitchfork recently said of Yhung T.O., “… it’s the melancholy in Yhung T.O.’s melodies that make him special.” Yhung T.O. is a part of the California rap group SOB x RBE (DaBoii, Yhung T.O., Slimmy B, and Lul G). They formed in 2016 and are already well on their way, opening for Post Malone and 21 Savage on their 2018 tour and releasing a mixtape and album. Yhung T.O. also signed with Interscope as a solo artist and his album titled Misunderstood is on the way.
Sage’s signature touch has yielded an impressive string of smashes since he first emerged in 2013. Sage’s self-produced breakout single “Gas Pedal” [feat. Iamsu] went double-platinum and became his first Top 40 entry; receiving the remix treatment from none other than Justin Bieber. He followed up with “Red Nose,” also self-produced, which went platinum. His debut album, Remember Me, earned critical acclaim and bowed in the Top 50 of Billboard’s Top 200. He has since joined forces with Nick Jonas and Flo Rida and has toured with the likes of Wiz Khalifa, Jeezy, Rich Homie Quan, and Ty Dolla $ign.
Initiating a partnership with Atlantic Records in fall 2016, Sage released the single “Now & Later” which has racked up over 265 million streams and 44 million views of the official music video and counting. In July 2017, Sage went on to release his mixtape Morse Code, which features Kap G, Show Banga, Kent Jones, and Lil Yase and fan favorite tracks “Now and Later”, “Reverse”, and “Watchachacha”. His most recent release, “4G” received an official music video last month.
