Producer: Ben Billions
Album: Wave Gods

A banger that plays as both a celebration of drugs that literally make your jaws lock up and an anti-snitching proclamation—this is where we’re at in 2016. French is known for cultivating monumental hooks, and his collab with Kodak Black is a beast. As far as coded language goes, “Lockjaw” breaks down federal surveillance, the pursuit of the almighty dollar, and how many guns cats roll around with. The same story as countless other tracks, but over that infectious beat? A 2016 party was incomplete if it wasn’t rocking to this one at some point. —khal
