Ceerouse – Adrenaline ft. 2Tone [Audio]

Ottawa, ONCeerouse and 2Tone recently teamed up to hit us with this brand new summer banger entitled “Adrenaline.” Ceerouse takes his typical dark grime sound and channels it into a rough raunchy flex-filled turn-up track.

This wouldn’t be a Ceerouse track without a few snide remarks and offensive bars. So while the hook gives a nod to Lil Jon and DJ Snake’s monstrous “Turn Down For What,” it also gives a shout-out to drunk-induced erectile dysfunction: “Adrenaline/ Can you feel the rush? / Baby girl trying ‘a make me bust/ I’m so drunk I can’t get it up, f**k/ Hold up a minute/ Hold up/ Turn down for what?”
