One of last summer’s landmark releases in rap was Travi$ Scott’s Days Before Rodeo. Besides making a solid album for himself, Scott provided beats for some fantastic features—Big Sean and Rich Homie Quan turn in noteworthy appearances, but the album’s top feature goes to Young Thug on “Skyfall.”
RL Grime and Salva seem to think so too, as they’ve injected the original with some face-melting cliff drops. The beat is already big, moody, and eerie, but Scott’s original production is also sparse and pulled back. Grime and Salva have plenty of room to roam.
And roam they do, with mountainous builds and earth-shaking drops. You can listen to the original “Skyfall” (and the rest of Scott’s free Days Before Rodeo album) here.
