Houston rapper Maxo Kream douses Wiley's brutal "Morgue" with Texas swag on "Big Worm," a one-off track that is a nod to the iconic hard-driving drug dealer in the movie Friday.
"I was at the crib watching Friday, and me and my niggas started talking about Big Worm being the plug, so I put the beat on and we started freestyling," Kream wrote, explaining the song came to be in an email the The FADER. "Friday’s one of my favorite movies. It came out in ’96 when I was 6 years old and we had it on bootleg. At first it was a comedy, I was just watching like it’s a weed movie, but as you get older and start peeping it you realize it’s more than just comedy shit."
And indeed, the movie made its way into Kream's rhymes: Don’t play with my money, Smokey, he raps, Drive by, we shooting weapons/ Big Worm come through collectin’. Listen below.
