Viceroy is just one of the top 5 chillest dudes in the game, and my life, lately. Bespoke hawaiian shirt collection? Untouchable. Supremely ultimate vibe cultivation? Unimaginable. Custom SOL Republic cans? Inimitable. Come on mane.
Here’s his Summertime All The Time take on the Nelly classic. Boppin’, poppin’, sunshiney vibes for when you need to hop into your private #JetLife mindset towards destinations far, far away.
I used to think this song said “smell the air in the backseat with my TV.”
I’ve got to be honest here– it’s pretty neat to see your best buds produce music you really love, particularly when it’s one of GDD’s own. The first time Tropicool played this out, I leaned over and asked him what the Hell this remix was. You can imagine my delight when he replied, “an old analog Juno and some incredible stems.” You sly bastard.
His signature touch of feel-good cosmic radiation we know from his mixtapes and Waves ≠ Raves series shines through into his production as well, which that fabulous, fat bassline punches over all the way through. I’m not huge on disco, but I’m a sucker for a big sexy groove when I can get it, and this one’s got me hooked. Pour yourself a glass of rum and tell people it’s iced tea, there’s no turning back now… the funk has been unleashed.
