A New York Trio

This may not be a video game, but I doubt anyone is complaining. Lana Del Rey, the internet sensation who finds herself in a public love/hate relationship with listeners has emerged on an unlikely, but great sounding track from Brooklynâ€™s very own production duo The Kickdrums. Enlisting help from the leader of the trillwave A$AP Rocky, â€œRidinâ€ includes Del Rey and A$AP producing their own awkward gangsterish Bonnie and Clyde relationship with Lana saying â€œIâ€™m his pretty party favor / He says Iâ€™m his favorite flavor,â€ and A$AP Rocky declaring â€œLana, thatâ€™s my bitch,â€ mid-song.
Enticed by a video snippet of the song, many people expected to see â€œRidinâ€ on the release The Kickdrums newest mixtape Follow The Leader. While a full version circulated for all of 10 minutes, A$AP Rocky claimed the track for his new album, LongLiveA$AP, leaving us with 1:09 tease. Either way, the final product should definitely be interesting considering the combined New York influence and different styles of production. And who knows, maybe Lana will find her â€œacceptableâ€ niche in rap tracks for the critics to finally get off her back. Â I meanâ€¦ she canâ€™t do everything wrongâ€¦ right? Check out the track preview below.
