Everton Blender’s “Ghetto People Song” Sampled On @FrenchMontana’s “Montega” Album!


On Friday June 24, New York Rapper French Montana released his new album, “Montega“. The 12 track project would further solidify French’s place in Hip Hop, and he brought along new hits and collaborations. While fans would be excited about the new project, a familiar sound was heard on “Higher“, the 6th track on the album.

On the opening of “Higher”, Everton Blender’s 1994 single, “Ghetto People Song” would receive the sample treatment. Produced by Tony Rebel on the “Lala Bella Riddim“, “Ghetto People Song” would become a massive hit for Everton Blender, earning the classic status over the years. “Ghetto People Song” was featured on Blender’s 1999 album, “Rootsman Credential“, and was previously sampled by Rapper Canibus in 2018 for a track of the same name. “Higher” was produced by Harry Fraud, along with the rest of the “Montega” album.

This would not be the first time French Montana dabbled in Jamaican music. Chaka Demus and Pliers’Murder She Wrote” would be sampled on the Nicki Minaj featured single, “Freaks” (Lil Vicious’ Dancehall track of the same name would be sampled as well), Dancehall Artist Mavado would collaborate with French on two tracks (“F**k What Happens Tonight” and “Ghetto Prayer“), Alkaline’sFormula” single would get remixed for the “Jungle Rules” album in 2017, French worked with Dancehall Producers Rvssian and Stephen “Di Genius” McGregor, and most recently would hop of the remix of Skillibeng’sWhap Whap” with Fivio Foreign.

Love it or hate it, Skillibeng’sWhap Whap” is a hit. Previewed in 2021 via Instagram, it received plenty backlash from the public, with many doubting Skillibeng’s lyrical and songwriting abilities. Nonetheless, “Whap Whap” was officially released, and the public ran with it. Despite the negativity, Skillibeng enjoy local and International love, and the song was remixed by a few Artists including NBA YoungBoy, Digga D, and Ron Suno. Rappers French Montana and Fivio Foreign were the latest to jump on the track, and it has now been officially remixed by them. Today, we get the music video for “Whap Whap (Remix)“.

Directed by Shomi Patwary and shot in The Bronx, New York, Skilli, French, and Fivio all show up to perform the track. The remix single was released last week, and was receiving positive reviews due to French and Fivio’s contributions. “Whap Whap” has shown that Skillibeng’s US presence is getting better, and with a few events lined up for him this summer, expect a lot more people adding Skilli to their Playlists and budgets. Big up Media Personality The Kid Mero of The Bodega Boys Podcast and Desus & Mero on Showtime as he made a cameo appearance in the video. We hope he and Desus Nice return to the Podcast scene soon.

NEW MUSIC: @BustaRhymes x @IamTheKartel x @Tip x Others – #TwerkIt Remix


twerkitremix

After making headlines last month about wanting a Vybz Kartel collaboration, Busta Rhymes got his wish and then some on his “Twerk It Remix“. Featuring a fresh verse from the currently incarcerated Gaza boss along with great contributions from French Montana, Jeremih, Neyo and T.I., It’s obvious Kartel would be the main focus here. Technically the 2nd remix as Nicki Minaj’s version was made as the main single, this version is just as good and is sure to collect numerous spins. Busta Rhymes’ E.L.E. 2 album is on the way. Check out the track below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
