Mavado ft. Akon - Survivor

None (Promo Single)

I think we can now officially declare Akon hip-hop’s official Survivor. In 2005 Young Jeezy grabbed Kon for his single Soul Survivor, last summer Akon dropped street single Still a Survivor and now Movado’s once again called upon the Konvict Music don’s survival skills. Movado’s first release since signing to DJ Khaled’s We The Best Music Group finds the Jamaican native using a heavily electronic, stadium ready, dancehall tinged beat from an as-yet unidentified producer to back his tales of staying alive on Jamaica’s often lethal streets. With the aforementioned Akon lending some vocal help on the hook and a short verse, the Gully God fills the majority of the track with smooth yet irrepressibly hard vocals that declare his invulnerability and desire to overcome all of the considerable obstacles placed in his path. So how about it DJBooth Nation, does this inspirational cut have what it takes to live a long life on our charts? While there’s no word on a full-length project from Movado in the works, I think we can count on the man eventually delivering one – even if it kills him.
