Dancehall’s Real McKoy Mavado is continuing his strides in cross over Hip Hop/Dancehall with his latest feature on Miami base Hip Hop artist DJ Khaled’s “Welcome to My Hood” remix.
Mavado join the likes of Ludacris, T-Pain, Busta Rhymes, Twista, Birdman, Ace Hood, Fat Joe, Jadakiss, Bun B, Game and Waka Flocka to grace the seven minutes long track.
In a release to the media, DJ Khaled said Mavado bring a different flava to the all-star lineup on the track.
“Everybody’s saying they love Mavado’s verse. The remix has been getting crazy reaction and rotation since it dropped and the Gully Gad is a big part of that. I’m a big fan of Mavado’s and his flava on the record just adds that different edge.”
Mavado also weighs in on the track, admitting that it helps to position his career in the mainstream of music.
“It’s a great feeling for the Star Boy to be on a record with such a list of stars, nah mean. It helps position my career right in the mainstream as the record is getting crazy airplay on radio in America already. When my manager told me Khaled called him, I just did it same time without even knowing who else was gonna be on the remix. Khaled always does his thing larger than life but the result is bigger than I was even expecting, it hot like pepper.”
Last year was a hugely successful year for the Gully Gad, with several hits as well as a special appearance in Drake “Find Your Love” video. No doubt, the Gully Gad is looking to do it big this year again.
