Joey Bada$$ is following in the steps of Wiz Khalifa by rapping over the theme from his favorite Netflix series. As you may remember, Wiz Khalifa blessed the world with a stoner rap take on Stranger Things, and Joey has now taken perhaps a more conventional route as he remixes the Narcos soundtrack into something like an Only Built 4 Cuban Linx track. While the sample could come off a Wu-Tang track, the drums are decidedly trap-influenced, as Joey meets the East Coast and the South halfway, supplying some dark storytelling to match the mood of the track. The production comes from Spain’s own Cookin Soul, a recent selection for our Behind The Beat series. 

Joey is heading out on ScHoolboy Q’s Blank Face tour, and we have to say we wouldn’t mind hearing Q on the remix. 

Quotable Lyrics:
Got this little bad Rican, she love the freakin’
Need to see me at least twice a weekend
What’s the skin tone? Butter pecan
Made me drop my old hoes I don’t need to see ’em
