In the most recent OVO sound radio set, “Summer Sixteen” by Drake and Nas’ remix to Future’s “March Madness” may have been the most talked about songs on the show, but hidden in the shuffle of great music was a gem. This gem is a very “Toronto sounding” remix to Kodak Black‘s “SKRT”, which went viral this past fall after a Drake co-sign dancing in a video on Instagram. The remix comes from ironically another artist that has a Drake co-sign and is also signed to OVO (Drake’s record label), Roy Wood$. The EXIS artist hasn’t dropped new material in a while, but the wait was worth it.
While Kodak Black’s original version is a very “gangster” and a violent song lyrically talking about swerving on everybody and even talking about having a sniper looking over playing peek-a-boo over a very ambient and soft sounding beat which you can listen to above, Roy Wood$ takes the song and turns it more into a break up anthem about swerving on his ex. Give it a listen for yourself:
