The Bay Area has long been known for its idiosyncratic hip-hop -- the region's hyphy style includes everyone from E-40 to Lil B. Marty Grimes, an emerging member of this artistic community, is dropping a new track off his upcoming album Nobody Said It Was Easy exclusively via Billboard, with a little help from his childhood friend G-Eazy.

The duo has toured together extensively, and "The Famm" reflects their strong connection. "When G and I decided to hop on our second track together we had to bring it back to what we both stand for -- loyalty, family and hard work," Marty tells Billboard. "Coming into this world when my mom was only 15 and now being the oldest of 6 boys makes me want to give my family everything they need and want."

"The Famm" will be the last release off of Nobody Said It Was Easy before the album drops this spring.
