After nailing the “In My Feelings” Challenge together last week (July 10), Kai Ca$h and King Combs team up to bless fans with new music heating up the summer. The New York natives unite the coasts by connecting with the incarcerated 03 Greedo on the lucid “The West (Free Greedo),” premiering exclusively on Billboard today (July 16).
“This record right here is special because we added our East coast flavor to the West coast vibe. We went and recruited 03 Greedo because we felt he was a rising star on the Westside and when we got together, we got the chance to get in the lab and make history,” Kai Ca$h tells Billboard regarding the inspiration behind the Arya-produced track.
On the track, Greedo even touches on why he accepted a 20-year sentence as part of a plea deal stemming from a 2016 arrest in Texas for various gun and drug trafficking charges. “I took a deal just to beat that indictment,” the Watts-bred artist softly croons on the tune’s intoxicating hook.
King Combs and Kai share a longstanding friendship that translates to instant chemistry in the studio. “King Combs that’s my brother, we’ve been at it with these records since like 2013. Just to see our progress as we get older is surreal. When we work together, its always just a classic vibe for real,” the CYN crew member explains.
