Packed with the ammo, lookin’ like Rambo/ Ain’t nothin’ funny, I ain’t no Sambo, Levii Ru$$ell bellows in semi-drunken yelps over this glittery Tommy Kruise beat. The Houston rapper floats over the Montreal producer’s bounce–the duo consummated their creative vibe after Tommy hunted Levii down at SXSW. “I saw Levii gettin’ some shine a couple months back and I instantly checked all of his work because his flow and voice was so different that what I was hearing at the time,” Tommy tells FADER. “During SXSW, we connected at this Wedidit show I was playing and kicked it with all the homies out there. The track was already done before we met in Texas but that just confirmed me that we needed to go forward with this shit.” Levii’s debut tape drops soon, and you can catch Tommy spinning at the dates below.
