Emilio Rojas Taps Dave East for “Nada” Remix
For the new version of his track, Rojas replaces Joell Ortiz's second verse with a guest appearance from East, while adding a new verse of his own and keeping the song's original hook.
With a rapid-fire style, Rojas spits, "Damn I gotta get it, Damn I gotta get it/I was runnin' from my ghost and now the Phantom what I sit in/Getting money on the floor/I give a damn about opinion/I'ma give my mom a home cause my daddy never did it, nah/It was nine of us inside a two-bedroom."
Dave East follows up Emilio's verse, matching his delivery: "Started with a holster and clip/Now I'm signing posters for your bitch/Tryna take a trip/I just wanna Rover with the tints/Model bitches showin' me they tits/Focused on a brick."
Speaking about the track, Rojas said the song meant a lot to him because it deals with the "come up." He added, "This is the American Dream... and Dave East has been killing shit lately so he was a perfect fit for the song."
In 2015, Rojas dropped his project L.I.F.E. The eight-track record featured appearances from Joell Ortiz, Devo D, Emanny, Joe Budden and more. The rapper also recently teamed up with his fellow Venezuelan artists for the song "S.O.S." Linking up with Gill Graff, Bernz and ShaqIsDope, the four created the track as a way to raise awareness of the turmoil in their home country.
Listen to the "Nada" remix below, and peep "Nights Like This," which Rojas dropped back in June.
