What's a classic? A classic is something that at the drop of a beat is immediately recognizable. I got 5 ON it is that classic beat. Immediate in it's recognition. Uplifting in it's application. Read about how this iconic song was brought back to life with a little twist.
I got five on it
This is the chorus from one of the most iconic tracks "I Got 5 On It". The track was created by the legendary group Luniz (made up of Yukmouth and Numskull) whom with the success of the track has been able to tour across the world.
With the recent release of Jordan Peele's movie "US", the iconic song has been making a comeback. The internet was infatuated with the use of the song in the initial trailer for the movie. But not only was the song incorporated into the movie, a movie remix has also been added to the soundtrack. Audiences agree that after seeing the movie that they will never listen to the song the same.
Here's what Jordan Peele had to say about the use of the song in the movie:
“I’m making a movie in Northern California, that’s a Bay Area hip-hop classic and I wanted to explore this very relatable journey of being a parent [and] maybe some of the songs you listened to back in the day aren’t appropriate for your kids,” he said.
After the initial release of the movie trailer streaming numbers exploded for the "I Got 5 On it" track. Old listeners and new listeners alike were singing the unforgettable chorus.
