DJ Snake has released an absolutely stacked hip-hop posse cut, “Enzo,” featuring Offset from Migos, 21 Savage, Sheck Wes, and Gucci Mane. The French beatsmith continues his international production streak, closely following his a loaded Latin lineup of Cardi B, Ozuna, and Selena Gomez on the chart-topping “Taki Taki,” with a star-studded cast of rap’s current wavemakers.
“Enzo,” is fueled by Wes’ hyped vocals on the hook contrasted with lazy, swinging synths and heavy percussion action. Every one of the track’s verses carries heavy automotive themes, driven by each individual rapper’s signature flow.
Snake recently told Zane Lowe on Beats 1 the track started two years ago, before “Mo Bamba” blew up. He revealed a music video is coming soon that promises to be every bit as dripped out as the single. Snake also revealed that he has an album coming out this summer, though he managed to keep pretty tight-lipped with the details. Fire up “Enzo” below.
