Murder Inc. Records founder Irv Gotti’s BET show Tales is a program unlike any other. Just in case you haven’t kept up with the anthology series, Gotti uses lyrics of hip hop tracks and shapes them into mini-movies each episode. They each have their own unique directors, screenwriters, and casts that creatively interpret some of our favorite hip hop songs.
“Brothers” is a collaboration with music icon Charlie Wilson and will reportedly be featured on the star-studded soundtrack for Tales. “Producing this new record with my production partner Seven and working with Kanye for a song exclusively for the Tales series has been one of the highlights of my music and TV career,” Irv said about the track that was introduced during the show’s Season Two premiere. “I did it for my hip hop culture. I wanted to give the fans something to listen to and enjoy as well as visually enjoy, and ‘Brothers,’ the song in conjunction with this global TV premiere is precisely that moment.”
The song hasn’t been made available on streaming platforms as of yet, but we included an upload, via Complex and the full version of the song via Irv Gotti’s Instagram. Irv captioned the video by writing, “THERE IS A LOT OF SPECULATION RIGHT NOW ON WHO IS KANYE WEST RAPPING ABOUT ON THE SONG BROTHERS. SO HERE IS THE SONG. THAT BET CUT OFF BECAUSE OF THERE WAY OF AIRING EPISODES. BUT IT WAS ALWAYS MEANT FOR THE AUDIENCE TO HEAR THE WHOLE RECORD. LISTEN. AND DECIDE FOR YOURSELF IF YOU THINK KANYE IS RAPPING ABOUT JAY Z OR VIRGIL. BOTH YE’S BROTHERS. AND ALSO LET ME KNOW IF YOU LIKED THE EPISODE AND SONG. WE DID IT FOR YALL. MY HIP HOP CULTURE. -IG”
