Oakland rap duo Luniz are back with a new version of their 1995 classic, “I Got 5 On It”.
The song is lifted from the movie soundtrack to Jordan Peele’s new horror movie, “Us”.
“You’d never think of it as a scary movie song,” said Anthony Gilmour, 52, the Bay Area rap producer known as Tone Capone, who made the original track. “But when they slow it up, it just sounds creepy.”
Peele told Entertainment Weekly that the track had haunting undertones: “I feel like the beat in that song has this inherent cryptic energy, almost reminiscent of the ‘Nightmare on Elm Street’ soundtrack.” (He also liked that it was a Bay Area classic, appropriate for a film set in Northern California.)
