Sultan + Shepard revamp 1996 hit ‘I Got 5 On It’ in new original

Just in time for people to enjoy during their relaxed summer weekends, Sultan + Shepard have released one of their most laidback tracks to date: “I Got 5 On It.” The song draws inspiration from Luniz‘s 1996 hit song for the lyrics, and the producers infused pulsing house chords creating a catchy house track perfect for radio play. The duo talked about their inspirations for “I Got 5 On It.”

“’I Got 5 On It’ by Luniz has always been one of our favorite hip hop records from the 90’s,” the duo said of their rework of the track. “It was a big part of both of our lives when we were growing up – it was kind of the weed smokers anthem and we support that! Whenever we sample a record we always want to add something new to it or flip it in a way that hasn’t been done yet. The music of the original was kind of dark and moody so we wanted to create an instrumental that was equally chill but a little happier than the original. Ultimately it was just a lot of fun for us to make this song because it brought back so many good (and slightly hazy) memories for us.”

The track is out now on Armada Music.
