The track uses Biggie's classic song of the same name as inspiration.


It's hard to hear the title "Dead Wrong" and not think of The Notorious B.I.G., which is exactly what DJ Skizz's new track is going for. The collaboration, which pairs Philly veteran Freeway with buzzing New York collaborators Westside Gunn and Conway, references Biggie's track of the same name directly on its hook, but otherwise it's completely of its own. With a boom bap instrumental that should make any rap traditionalist happy, the song finds common ground between its components, who despite growing up in different eras, are very complimentary. Westside Gunna and Conway are old souls after all, and Freeway is someone who can fit in pretty much anywhere, as he proved on his eclectic new album. The song comes off Skizz' new "High Powered" EP, which features tracks with Planet Asia, Lil Fame, and more. It's currently available on Bandcamp.

Quotable Lyrics:

He thought it probably was sweet
Til I catch him at the club and
Make him swallow his teeth
And not even speak
My youngest catch a body a week
