Aussie icon Russell Coight responds to Shadow’s new drill single
Last week, we covered the blistering new single from SHADOW titled ‘Russell Coight’. The WA rising star tapped Huskii and Vinsins for the new drill joint in which they go toe to toe to toe on the seriously impressive cut.
In the article, we noted that despite the song’s title, Coight himself does not make an appearance, but thanks to the power of social media, that has since changed.
As Golden Era Records pointed out to us on Twitter, Russell Coight has indeed not only heard the song, but now counts himself a fan of Australian drill. In the message, Coight not only congratulates the trio on their song, but also extends an offer for what could well be this year’s biggest collab.
In the recording, Coight says, “Don’t know whether you guys are interested or not but how about we get together and do a little bit of a country and western drill rap and see what happens?”
“If you’re anywhere near Kununurra over the next couple of days lets get together and bang out a few drill raps, country style.”
We’re not sure if Shadow and the boys are indeed heading inland for some of their own All Aussie Adventures, but keep it locked if a country style drill rap does ever eventuate.
