It’s hard to forget Thundercat‘s original music video for his “Dragonball Durag” single in which he searches for lo-fi love in a visual directed by friend and collaborator Zack Fox. Today Thundercat returns with a new remix to his hit featuring stellar guest spots from Guapdad 4000 and Smino.

Thundercat’s album It Is What It Is was one of our Best 25 Albums of 2020… So Far thanks to the numerous aspects of life’s joys and uncertainties captured through the bassist’s incredible skill and a number of high-profile collaborations bringing chemistry and cohesion throughout. That continues here. Smino expertly half-raps half-croons about love, being introduced and subsequently apologetic to his new flame’s mother and more. Guapdad raps about his GRAMMY-ensemble (in which he wore a durag so long that it dragged on the floor). “I feel fire, I feel mythical, I’m fly, I’ma durag dragon/ That why I showed up to the GRAMMYs with my durag draggin’,” he raps.

Listen to the “Dragonball Durag” Remix below and revisit our “Fangirling with Thundercat” interview for HYPEBEAST Magazine. In more music news, Kevin Parker introduced “Tame Impala Soundsystem” during the most recent NPR Tiny Desk (Home) Concert set.
