LargeUp Premiere: Bunji Garlin + A$AP Ferg “Truck On D Road” Remix Lyric Video

south-by-southwest-soca

When one of soca’s biggest names, Bunji Garlin teamed up with game-changing newcomers Jus Now, the musical landscape of the 2014 Carnival season tipped off its axis a bit, resulting in the infectious and rhythmic manifestation of drum and bass that is “Truck On D Road.”

The ViKing’s lyrics and the production team’s innovative perspective resonated so well that the single not only elicited parodies (specifically one involving a “Cow on D Road”) but one of hip-hop’s biggest rising stars decided to add his flavor to it as well. A$AP Ferg, the Harlem rapper of Trini heritage who’d previously dipped his soca waters with his “Carnival Tabanca” remake “Petit Valley,” turned up on a Truck On the Road remix placing his dutty-minded vocals over a modified, hip-hop-meets-EDM version of the original beat.
