World’s Fair and Freaky Franz Link Up on New Single “Dundas Street West”
Popular seven-member Queens rap crew World's Fair (Remy Banks, Jeff Donna, Lansky Jones, Cody B. Ware, Prince SAMO, DJ Thoth and Nasty Nigel) have stuck around in New York City's music scene even as the sounds have changed. That loyalty to each other has led to the present, where they are dropping their debut album, New Lows, on July 20. They just released their final single,"Dundas Street West," featuring Freaky Franz of the hardcore group Turnstile.
Freaky Franz handles the simple chorus. "High as hell/Fly as hell/No YSL/Nigga know we live," gets to the point pretty clearly. Nasty Nigel then heads right into his verse. Ask for coke, Remy tight, I don't care, change my mind, It's a Henny night," he spits on the Black Noi$e-produced track. "Blinded by light, its a oy/ Call up my dunnies like 'Oy!'"
Cody B. Ware is up next and he questions the direction of NYC hip-hop. "See the city changed/Seen the style overtake what is real, but it's so pathetic/Seen a nigga get a deal, worth a mil, with the dope aesthetic," he raps. "Seen the lean get mixed with the dream, but how you let it/Seen the city all turn the other cheek, feelin' copasetic."
Freaky Franz comes in and closes the song out with a strong verse. He even name-drops members of No Limit: "No YSL, got big money/She do tricks for me, I don't kiss and tell/Foreign shorties freakin'/Ain't no limit, Silkk The Shocker/Got the hook-up, Mr. Serv-On."
World's Fair is well-known as a group, but Remy Banks has struck out on his own on a few occasions. He dropped the track "Snowbeach" with U.K. rapper Milkaveli in 2014, then followed up with the solo project .higher in 2015. He also sat down with XXL for an interview, where he explained that he met all of the crew's members through high school friendships.
