The HBK may have cooled off since its heyday in 2014-2015, but don't tell P-Lo or Kool John for that matter. Up All Night 2 dropped to little fanfare little over a week ago, marking a return to action for Kool John, and the unheralded Schmoplife imprint.
By my count, if the HBK movement is 4 years removed from its peak run, the two-year lapse between the first two Up All Night installments is rather well-intended, if not completely agonizing to his greatest fans - especially those who wished, long and hard, for his music to resurface in Oakland-area strip clubs.
Up All Night 2 boasts the lead singles he put out in random order: "Run The Bag Up” with the aforementioned P-Lo, flanked by Nef The Pharaoh and Larry June, as well as "HELLADATSHIT” featuring HBK Skipper. The mixtape is available on just about every platform. Get yourself a copy before it runs cold.
