Busta Rhymes taps Vybz Kartel and Tory Lanez for his new single “Girlfriend” take a listen to the banger below.
The hip hop icon first hinted at the new track last month while he was in Jamaica doing some recording and even shoot a music video. Busta Rhymes has very strong Jamaican roots and has always been a huge fan and close friend of Vybz Kartel. Tory Lanez comes naturally when you think of an island feel record so it’s no surprise that he was also included in the single. Busta has been active in hip hop for more than two decades after his massive commercial success in the mid-1990s.
Rhymes also injected some patois in his lyrics making it a compelling homage to Jamaica and the culture that gave rise to hip hop. The hard hitting bass heavy joint was produced by legendary New York producer Rockwilder. The famed producer previously makes hits for the likes of JAY-Z, Mary J. Blige, Method Man & Redman, LL Cool J, and 50 Cent. Vybz Kartel has been behind bars since 2011 but he has remained relevant in dancehall despite his physical absence. These days when you talk about GOAT in the Jamaican genre, his name is always in the mix.
Tory Lanez tweeted about the song in July while sharing his excitement about working with the two legends on Twitter. “I can’t believe I did a song with Busta Rhymes and Vybz Kartel …. Like WTF,” he wrote. Now we can all share that same excitement because the single is dope.
“Nicki Minaj booty squeeze it / Bet yo say yo love stew peas / RiRi she have a fat coochie / Beyonce big up JAY-Z / Ten gal in a me Benz its a sexUV / F*** pon the seat mek the bedroom see it / Plug in me mattic fi go pon the street,” Vybz Kartel deejay.
