French Montana and Kodak Black’s “Lockjaw” just barely missed my list of favorite 2016 singles. It is definitely the best French Montana song, probably the best Kodak Black song, and basically a perfect rap song. French and Kodak gracefully trade bars about doing drugs, making money, and partying hard over top of a ghostly synthetic glide by Ben Billions with all the necessary low end to obliterate your trunk.
There was no need to mess with “Lockjaw,” but any rap song that good is bound to get an all-star remix, and as Spin points out, just such a track has arrived this week. DJ Clue’s new version of “Lockjaw” features French and Kodak plus Jeezy, Rick Ross, and DJ Khaled. Listen below.
