Lift Off: Stream Cris Cab x Wyclef’s “She’s So Fly”

Words by Emily Shapiro—

The PUSH Artist of the Week, MTV’s initiative to highlight and support new talent in the music industry, recently put its spotlight on Cris Cab, but Large Up has been following the 19-year-old Miami artist for a while now. While Cab’s voice has an emo quality to it, his songs often have a pop reggae vibe not unlike that of his mentor and collaborator, Wyclef. Earlier this year, the pair collaborated on “Rihanna’s Gun,” a smooth response to “Man Down” also featuring Mavado that got our attention definitely took Cab out of any box we might have placed him in.

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.
