Called King Kong, the 14-track mixtape is the prominent New York City MC’s second adventure offscreen in two years. (Last year’s Be Careful mixtape dropped in May.) It’s brash, fresh, and rich with witty one-liners—a few of which come from YouTube star vlogger William Ray Johnson, who’s featured on the piano-laden “Invincible.”

“I had a listening session and we broke it down to 14 bangers,” he said in a video posted Monday. “I’m making music videos for every one, but I don’t know which order to put them out in.”

The rapper has spent the days since King Kong‘s release retweeting positive messages from his 200,000-plus followers on Twitter.
