Three Men Down: Cris Cab, Wyclef + Mavado Hit by “Rihanna’s Gun”

Words by Jesse Serwer—

We’ve been hearing about Miami’s Cris Cab for a minute but, after hearing “Rihanna’s Gun,” we get the sense we completely had him twisted. While there’s a definite Wyclef (specifically Wyclef channeling Bob Marley) vibe to his single “Good Girls,” we had him mostly pegged as a Starbucks-y John Mayer type. But “Rihanna’s Gun” (produced by ‘Clef and his brother, Sedeck Jean) is some badman business, with young Cris (seriously, we’re not sure he’s even graduated high school) holding his own next to the MFin’ Gully Gad, Mavado, as he responds to Rihanna’s “Man Down.” As much as this song is about being humbled and wounded, CC turns the phrase “Rikers Island” like a hardened shotta. Count us officially intrigued by the possibilitie of his Echo Boom mixtape, featuring production from Pharrell and Supa Dups among others, out next Wednesday. Stream and DL “Rihanna’s Gun” below.
