By now you should know that singer Mack Wilds is also actor Tristan Wilds aka Michael from The Wire. The Staten Island native’s “Own It” has been bubbling on the radio for a long minute and now he drops an official remix featuring Atlanta rapper, and also actor, Ludacris.
Luda taps on a lead off verse to the Salaam Remi produced, and Ne-Yo written, cut off of Wilds’ debut album, New York: A Love Story. The irony that an ATL MC gets a verse on the proper remix is pretty obvious here, but Luda doesn’t slouch.
“Million dollar wrist watch, fresh as if I stepped out of a Zip-Loc, undressing women like slip knots/Now kick rocks [buck buck] lick shots in the air, I was a slumdog now who wants to be a millionaire,” he spits.
New York: A Love Story is in stores now. Listen to the “Own It (Remix) below.
