First announced last Thursday (Aug. 16), Bas finally released the highly anticipated collaborative track early Wednesday morning (Aug. 22). Bas takes on the first verse, where he raps about a God-sent woman that keeps him on his grind before Cole goes in on the beat, spitting rhymes on his come-up.
“God shuffled the cards, dealt me a hand with impossible odds/ Put an obstacle course up/ Look, and I conquered them all (conquered them all),” he raps.
According to Bas, the video for the feel-good track was shot in Miami’s Little Haiti, after the “Boca Raton” rapper spent a week in Lagos, Nigeria picking up all the island vibes.
