Known for her creative fearlessness, the chameleon-like rapper makes another bold leap forward with the new song. Produced by OZ (Drake, Travis Scott, Khalid) and Jacob Reske, the menacing track finds Kodie Shane and Trippie Redd reunited once again for another unforgettable collaboration. A follow up to their 2016 song Love & Drugz the track's haunting, auto-tuned wails transform into a hazy hip-hop confessional over a chill soundscape that breaks new ground for Shane as a rapper and lyricist, while taking the duo's creative chemistry to new, dizzying heights. The song is the first taste of what is to come on Shane's upcoming Epic Records and Sony Music Entertainment debut studio album, due later this year.
