CJ – “BOP” – Live Session | Vevo Ctrl.
Who’s gonna be the next new face of NYC drill? CJ is throwing his hat in the ring. The Staten Island hero’s booming anthem “Whoopty” recently hit #19 on the Billboard Hot 100, and as far New York’s scene goes, only the late Pop Smoke can claim better. The success of CJ’s hit has a lot do with its familiar feel. The “whoopty” phrase is popular slang. And similar Bollywood samples can be heard in Memo600 and King Von’s “Exposing Me,” and Pop’s “Shake The Room.” CJ’s got some names in his corner, too. French Montana executive-produced his “Loyalty Over Royalty” debut, and Busta Rhymes put him on a remix of “Czar.” Despite the busy activity that comes with a career in mid-launch, CJ made time to show off his bars in our Brooklyn Ctrl studio. Peep these “Whoopty” and “BOP” performances, and judge for yourself.
