I was in high school when Juvenile’s “Back That Ass Up” dropped. It was instantly a hit and is now a beloved hip hop classic. There aren’t many lyrics more effective at getting people on the dance floor than the ring of “Cash Money takin’ over for the 99 and the 2000.” *twerks*
So when the beat drops to Tunji Ige’s “Bring Yo Friends,” I get amped. It brings back memories of past at-home jam sessions, college parties and nights in the club. But, it still sounds new. It’s refreshing to hear a young artist sample such a classic song and make it his own hit.
The song debuted in October 2016 on Tunji’s album, “Missed Calls.” Listen up!
