It’s been a while since a fast-rising smash hit has warranted as many remixes as Nardo Wick’s “Who Want Smoke??.” The Halloween hit infectious yet eerie instrumental and multiple callbacks throughout the song make it a perfect track for other rappers to contribute to.
Given the stacked collaboration on “Who Want The Smoke??’s” official remix with Lil Durk, 21 Savage and GHerbo, it’s only a matter of fact that most of our favorite rappers would body this beat if given the chance. Here are some of the most popular verses over Nardo’s hit instrumental.
Street legends Kodak and Sosa hop on this beat with visceral aggression. Kodak reminds his peers to give him some respect in his fast-paced verse before Chief Keef uses a more classic, boisterous delivery.
Big Sean’s LA Leaker freestyle was full of insane lyrics and flows over some of this year’s hottest beats. After gliding over “Love All” by Drake and “Hurricane” by Ye, the Detroit rapper spit a vicious verse over the sinister Nardo instrumental.
Baltimore up-and-comer Bandhunta Izzy repurposed “Who Want Smoke??” for his own lyrical purposes. Visuals for the track tell a vivid story of Maryland’s street life.
Big Draco had to have his turn on the beat with a verse about his cash flow and gun collection. It wouldn’t be a remix without Soulja offering his two cents.
It was only a matter of time before “Who Want Smoke??” received remixes from hip-hop’s first ladies, and Asian Doll did not disappoint. Her hostile bars make for yet another banger of a remix.
Last but not least, Oakland star Symba takes this opportunity to showcase his talents, gradually evolving his flow on the simple yet effective beat.
Songs like “UOENO” by Rocko and “Bugatti” by Ace Hood had similarly stacked lineups of remixes, so seeing this trend make a return feels slightly nostalgic. Hopefully more songs receive this treatment in the future as instrumentals continue to get catchier and catchier.
