BJ The Chicago Kid is getting one hell of a push on his major label debut, In My Mind. After guesting on hooks for pretty much every up-and-coming you could name for a long time, he’s finally got them to return the favor on his album. One of those favors is the coveted feature from his close friend Kendrick Lamar on “The New Cupid.” BJ smoothly croons and K-Dot kills his verse — business as usual. The video features your favorite rapper’s favorite comedian Hannibal Buress, and it’s another successful crossover. Buress bops around in a disheveled fit and wig Funkadelic would be proud of as he does a string of mischievous deeds like peeing in a lemonade pitcher and slapping Popsicles out children’s hands. Iamsu comes in to clean up his messes, and Kendrick Lamar comes in to spit his feature verse as if he’s workshopping it with BJ for the first time. It’s the kind of chill, down-to-earth stuff you would expect from BJ. Check it out.
In My Mind is out now on Motown.
