(AllHipHop News) Brick Squad hit maker DJ Holiday teamed with Maybach Music Group and Triple C’s main act, Gunplay, in 2011 for the release of Bogota. The project spawned such hit records [“Banana Clips” feat. Lil Wayne, and “Black on Black” feat. Ace Hood & Bun B] that it turned into a bigger project.
“Bogota is crazy. The real Bogota is f*cking retarded; shout out to Ross for really taking time with the project. The prequel came out, and it was like, ‘Sorry for the wait,’ what Wayne did to hold the fans off ,” DJ Holiday told AllHipHop.com.
Bogota Rich the Prequel dropped in preparation for the official release , and the mixtape has done well, with over 200,000 downloads and has started a nationwide buzz for the feature project.
“Everywhere I went, all the shows I had were bananas. The people were pulling me at gas stations, grocery stores, ‘When’s the Bogota coming out?’ I salute Gunplay for having that fanbase, because I haven’t had a fanbase go crazy like that since Nicki Minaj,” Holiday said.
With Gunplay’s recent signing to Def Jam Records. he has been hard at work making appearances recently at the BET Awards while his crew performed.
About working with DJ Holiday, Gunplay told AllHipHop.com, “My n*gga Holiday, that’s the fool. Bogota Rich the Prequel out now; we at 200-something thousand [downloads] on DatPiff…go get that. I didn’t even press nothing up for the streets yet…now when I drop in the streets, it’s going to be brand new, ’cause there ain’t no laptops in the projects, n*gga.”
