Cozz is sending up a musical prayer.
On his latest single, “Badu,” the South Central native and Dreamville signee tempers the vibe just enough, discussing survival and the pitfalls of materialism over a Meez and Enimal-produced sax line that wafts across a loop of crunchy kicks.
As the percussion picks up and Cozz’ flow follows suit, New Orleans jet lifer Curren$y steps in with his own tight verse. With bars that read like Curren$y’s rap game field notes and a lax delivery, the rapper effortlessly doubles the intimate quality of “Badu.” This single is a prime example of the power of the pensive banger.
“Badu” follows "Questions" as the second single off Cozz’ upcoming debut album, Effected, which will be available this February via Dreamville and Interscope Records.
