Offset has taken a trip to the Wild Wild West, hopping on a remix of country star Chris Janson’s “Say About Me.”

Following Janson’s tune of living the luxurious life, the Migos member drops in after the second chorus to echo his sentiments. He goes on to brag about his woman (“I got the baddest b*tch in the game”), his cars (“Hate or you love it, I’ma pull up in a Range / Oh God, this a Lambo, no a Mopar / Fishtail, doing donuts like go-kart”) and his stacks and diamonds (“While I’m on the balcony in the robe / Black diamonds, it’s a crow / Get the bread, gotta get it by the loaf).

Janson revealed in an interview that he was thinking about Offset during the songwriting process. He gauged the track as “a song somewhere between Hank Jr. ‘83 rowdiness and the Migos,” and upon the two artist’s meeting, they connected on a much deeper level. “We have a lot of common kinships,” Janson explained. “His record is called Father of 4 and we both have four kids apiece. We’re both very family-oriented people. It just made a lot of sense when we met.”

Additionally, both Janson and Offset share a similar background. “And when we were talking [Offset] was like, ‘Now seeing you dude, I totally get it,’” Janson followed. “We just come from two different backgrounds, but we also come from a similar background in that we don’t come from a whole lot. We had to build our careers from the ground up. We worked really hard for that, and we’re proud of that. Just being around the guy for five minutes, I could tell he’s a real hustler.”

Despite the collaborative effort, however, it’s important to look back at Lil Nas X and Billboard’s controversial decision to pull him from its country charts. His viral hit “Old Town Road” sat at No. 19 on the Hot Country Songs chart before being discreetly pulled by Billboard — a decision the company defended by proclaiming “["Old Town Road"] does not embrace enough elements of today’s country music to chart in its current version,” despite country music being a derivative of black musicianship in the antebellum South. “In true separatist fashion, the chart removal was an obvious ploy to detach X from a majority white space, though the history of country music is defined by black artists who allotted white musicians to cover their original material,” Vinyl, Me Please. wrote in a feature.
