Louisville Rap Crew The Homies Share Their Second Studio Album, It’s A Lot Going On

Based out of Louisville, KY, and formed out of a shared passion for music and creativity, The Homies have recently released their second studio album, harnessing their joyful collective energy to create a 14-track work that weaves between styles. Creating their own beats, rhymes, and videos in house, The Homies have a knack for infectious hooks and versality that is constantly underlined by their comraderie.

It’s A Lot Going On is the perfect recipe to cool down the dog days of summer: a sleek and boisterous package where all four members – Quiiso, Ace Pro, Shloob, and 2forwOyNE – contribute vocals to the project, each bringing their own sly turns of phrase and lifting melodies to the equation. Produced by Ace, 2forwOyNE, Ricky Boom, 18YEAROLDMAN, Louie Lastic, and others, this album never loses the casual feel of a hangout with close friends. It arrives after The Homies announced they’ll be joining Louisville-repping Jack Harlow on his Come Home The Kids Miss You Tour this fall, which also features support from the City Girls. The tour kicks off on September 5th in Cincinnati and tickets are available now.

In addition to joining Jack Harlow on tour, The Homies have earned high-profile co-signs, earning praise from iconic DJs DJ Drama and Don Cannon, and opening on tour for artists like Lil Uzi Vert, Bryson Tillerb, and Waka Flocka Flame. They scored a cult hit with “Leaf Wraps,” featuring Jack Harlow, which reached over 5 million streams on Spotify and later appeared on their 2018 debut album, Umbrellas. They showed off their live chops at hometown festival, Forecastle Festival, in May and recently finished a tour performing several dates across Australia.

It’s A Lot Going On features the four emcees shooting their shot at girls, shooting the sh*t about sports, and having a blast one-upping each other with creative flexes. Ping-ponging from hard-hitting trap on tracks like opener “Out Here” and the funky “Had To” to effervescent rhythmic anthems like “Goat Mami” and “Trouble,” the album is united by an upbeat, danceable aesthetic that, like their hometown, bridges the gap between the Midwest and the South. Along with the project, The Homies share a new video for the opening track, starting the album on a confrontational note as 2fo’, Ace, and Quiiso take turns spitting witticisms over a boss battle beat. Directed by Ace Pro himself, the video collects clips from their Australia tour, following The Homies as they travel from a stretwear store in Perth to a metro in Melbourne to the steps of the Sydney Opera House.

With appearances from Marzz, Jace, and Australian artist Mason Dane, who the Homies met on their recent tour, this album bring The Homies that much closer to moving from the Louisville underground to the rap mainstream.
