Back in January, rising Floridian star Nardo Wick hit hard with “Who Want Smoke??,” an undeniable banger that sees the rapper sending direct messages to all opponents in ultra-violent fashion. This past weekend saw the viral single receiving a major upgrade, with Nardo recruiting Lil Durk, 21 Savage, and G Herbo for an A-list remix. As expected, the Chicago and Atlanta frontrunners waste no time in keeping with the song’s dark theme:
“They be on my page like, ‘Slide for Von,’ I know they trollin’ me, outside with your big homie be on, I keep them folks with me, got it back in blood, y’all just don’t know, that’s how it ‘posed to be, call him for a feature just to kill him ‘cause we know he sweet, uh, uh-uh-uh-uh, who the fuck is that? Bro gon’ check the door, look out the window, don’t forget the strap...”
The visual for “Who Want Smoke??” comes courtesy of Cole Bennett and Lyrical Lemonade, and contains the kind of pandemonium that can be likened to The Purge series during its now-infamous 12-hour period of lawlessness. Nardo can be seen rocking a suit while seemingly leading a field full of masked men into war with each other, while Durkio and G Herbo traverse through office buildings in the midst of the chaos. 21 Savage shows up in a Celine mask to report the news, somehow avoiding harm from the disorder taking place around him.
In addition to “Who Want Smoke??,” 2021 has also seen equally dope cuts from Nardo like “Shhh,” “Knock Knock,” “Pull Up,” and “I Be Chillin.” Hopefully, the aforementioned drops are a sign that an official full-length debut from Nardo is arriving sooner than later.
