Featuring the rugged sounds of Brooklyn and a more polished style from Queens, the new single from King Gorilla featuring T-Eazy is ready to take fans on a wild ride.


Whippin” is the first release from KG since 2020’s 12-song album King Gorilla Presents: Monkey Bars, Vol. 1 and it shows off the duo’s timeless style under Strongarm Productions.


Yeah it’s cool to hear a beat you hear every couple of minutes, but when’s the last time you heard timeless music in this era,” says KG. “If you listen to ‘Whippin’ it’s going to take you for a wild ride.”


It’s a record to have fun with,” says T-Eazy. “Good vibes and good energy. Especially when you’re driving and you’re on that road and you turn it up loud, you’re going to have fun, trust me.”


The two solo hip hop artists have been working together for eight years since being brought together by Strongarm. It’s been a perfect pairing for both, and it’s helped KG unlock a different part of his own personality and style.


What I love about working with T-Eazy is he’s from Brooklyn so he has this more rugged sound,” KG says. “It comes off as a grimy-type feeling and me coming from Queens, we’re grimy but we mask it, we polish it and make it look nice. Working with him, I also get that swag or attitude. He brings out more of my raw side. Even Strongarm themselves, they bring out that almost animalistic, hungrier side from me.”


Produced by the U.K.’s Sean Murdz, the single came to life after manager J Hustle brought the beat to the two artists and they got to work, with T-Eazy telling KG he should start off the first verse. They didn’t record together – T-Eazy was in his home studio – and it was a surprise for both of them when they got to the studio and heard the finished product.


KG compares the track to those moments when you’re stopped at a red light next to someone else and try to beat them off the line when the light turns.


There’s nothing like being in your car, radio pumping, not even racing a motherfucker but you’re looking at him, he’s looking at you like all right, you gonna try me?” he says. “Just something about that feeling of racing and driving and having that one moment where you’re not following the rules.”


King Gorilla, who can boast that he recently dropped 220 pounds, has released five singles, a full album and a five-song EP since 2019 and joined Strongarm Productions eight years ago. T-Eazy has released four street albums and an EP in addition to his singles and he’s been with Strongarm for 10 years.


The two did a five-city tour two years ago with stops in New York City, Philadelphia, Atlanta and elsewhere and hope to bring their energy to bigger crowds on some future stops.


Drake is killing it, everything he puts out is gold but things change and the universe is always waiting for that newest feeling, the newest sound,” KG says.


And he says King Gorilla and Strongarm Productions are going to deliver it.


Strongarm Productions will be as revered in the next five years as names like Death Row, No Limit and Bad Boy,” he says.


In addition to “Whippin,” he’s also got strong performers like “Way Down” and “Lookout” on his resume and will release two new singles in the next few months. He’s working with videographer Drew Taylor on visuals for the releases.


Strongarm Productions is coming out swinging,” T-Eazy says.
