Mike Boyd’s Number 1’s: DJ Snake – Turn Down for What ft. Mike Boyd [Audio]

Enfield, NS – Ya heard? Mike Boyd recently launched a new weekly series called Mike Boyd’s Number 1’s. Each week, Mike drops a verse over a #1 hit single; regardless of whether he loves it or hates it. These verses lead up to the premiere of Mike’s forthcoming single release, “1 Hit Wonder” (spoiler alert: it’s dropping after the fifth installation of this series).

We’ve already hit you with the first two installations (Ariana Grande’s “Problem,” and John Legend’s “All Of Me“). Now we’re hitting you with the third release. For this verse, Mike turns right up by dropping bars over DJ Snake’s monstrous “Turn Down For What” joint. Check out Mike’s verse below, and head over to Mixcloud to peep the rest of the series.


Mike Boyd's Number 1's: DJ Snake - Turn Down for What ft. Mike Boyd [Audio] -

Apparently, this is the fan-favoured verse of the series, so far. Rightfully so, too. Mike’s lyricism is top-notch: “Turn up the Wu-Tang/ Turn down the 2 Chainz/ You’d better move, mane/ Before my mood swing.”

And then he hits us with the Mike Boyd funnies when he’s spitting about turning up, and throws in this: “I aint never turn down/ Except for bank loans/ But credit don’t count.” Giggle. Snort. Oh Mike. Keep it locked on Mike’s fourth verse drop; coming at you next week.
