When “Drip” first dropped as a single for Cardi B’s Invasion Of Privacy, it seemed clear that the song was destined for greatness. With an up-tempo, flute-centric line courtesy of Cassius Jay, the track stood out as one of the album’s finest moments. Special credit goes to Takeoff, who quietly bodied the set. Despite the solid original, “Drip” seemed destined for a variety of remixes. Lo and behold, it didn’t take long for an unreleased version to surface, featuring new verses from the Super Slimey duo, Future and Young Thug. For those keeping score, both parties killed it.
Later, an alternate take featuring 1017 Records Hoodrich Pablo Juan hit the internet, and it became clear that Cardi’s single was earning a second life of its own. Ever the savvy opportunists, the Quality Control powers that be wasted little time in capitalizing on the demand. Today, the label has released an official variant, featuring all comers.
Peep the official “Drip” megamix, featuring Future, Young Thug, and Hoodrich Pablo Juan. For reasons unknown, Cardi didn’t make the cut; perhaps the look was deemed a boys-only affair. Shout out to Future for absolutely smoking this one; he’s been running hot of late, as evidenced by the stellar Beast Mode 2.
