AUDIO: Major Lazer – “Night Riders (Ft. Travi$ Scott, 2 Chainz, Pusha T & Mad Cobra)”

April 17, 2015

Words by Erin Hansen-McKnight


While you were sleeping, or watching cartoons, Major Lazer dropped a new track called, “Night Riders.” The track is featured on Major Lazer’s highly-anticipated June 1st album release, Peace is the Mission, and isย a collaboration mega-mash that combines rappers Travi$ Scott, 2 Chainz, Pusha T and dancehall industry veteran, Mad Cobra, for whom one blogger called a “Mad Decentย reggae musician.” Very funny guys. In case you didn’t know, Mad Cobra has been around for a bit.

“Night Riders”ย is a perfect background fixture for a machine-gunย wielding, Rasta commando that fights “bad mind” people, muchย like the main character in the new eighties-saturated Major Lazer series on FXX. Mad Cobra’s contribution to the track is aggressive and rowdy with aย grittiness that you’d expect from a “bad mind”ย fighting Jamaican superhero.
