You need to listen to this Rodney Hazard bootleg version of “Cocaine Rain” by Lais

Toronto, ON – One of the best songs to come out of Canada over the last few years, “Cocaine Rain” by Lais is an R&B classic that’s been on steady repeat since it dropped way back in January 2016.

The original track was produced by Dominic ‘Dot’ Okune and CVRE, and serves as a dripped out drug anthem that makes hard drugs sound a lot sexier than they actually are.

Nearly two years since the original track’s release, New York DJ-producer Rodney Hazard just flipped the track and released his own bootleg version of the song. Rodney’s version softens up the track ever so slightly by dialling down the production to put Lais’ vocals in the spotlight. It’s still got that dizzyingly faded trap vibe, but Rodney injected it with a bit more ambience. It’s a softer come down off the chemicals. Check it out below.
