Producer NGHTMRE teams up with Atlanta’s Gunna for the super slick ‘CASH COW’ on November 15th. After working with A$AP Ferg on ‘REDLIGHT,’ collaborating with Lil Jon and Shaq on ‘Bang,’ and linking with ZHU on “Man’s First Inhibition,” and closing out both weekends of Coachella, the producer looks to continue his momentous year with another addictive rap cut. Opening with serene synth melodies and subtle guitar flicks, ‘CASH COW’ develops with luxe energy and swagger. Gunna rolls off bars as NGHTMRE accentuates the track’s progression with his signature detail and sharp percussive notes. Atlanta rapper, vocalist and songwriter Gunna is best known for tracks with Lil Baby and Young Thug and is signed to YSL Records. While best known for his work in the electronic music community, blistering rap production is not unfamiliar territory for NGHTMRE. The producer’s growing resume includes collaborations with A$AP Ferg, Pnb Rock & Wiz Khalifa, Pell, as well as remixes for Ice Cube and Smokepurpp. A fitting candidate for Gunna, who is fresh off tracks with Roddy Rich, Blueface, and Young Thug. You can find the two stars in the music video alongside the release. Filmed in Los Angeles, the two provide a cinematic heist visual that perfectly captures the single’s organized chaos.
