Juicy J recruited Kanye West for his flashy new single “Ballin,” off the Three 6 Mafia rapper’s upcoming LP Rubba Band Business: The Album. The track premiered on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 radio show.

The TM88, Crazy Mike and Juicy J-produced cut opens with a submerged soul sample before West lends his three-word contribution – “And I’m ballin'” on repeat – to the track’s chorus. Juicy J jumps on the track with a pair of swaggering verses. “House so large/ Put a maze in it/ I’m the type to take a chick to lunch in the middle of the White House lawn,” Juicy J raps before joking that he’s going to ask the First Lady to join.

The video for “Ballin” – not to be confused with Juicy J’s 2012 track “I’m Ballin” – arrives Thursday, exclusively on Tidal. “Ballin” marks the first time in a decade that West and Juicy J have collaborated, following a 2006 remix for Three 6 Mafia’s “Side to Side.”

Rubba Band Business: The Album, the follow-up to Juicy J’s 2013 solo debut Stay Trippy, is expected out this winter. The LP also features the rapper’s previously released single “No English” featuring Travis Scott.
