Falcons & GTA Feat. Stush: Buyaka

Falcons Buyaka.jpg

If you ask Urban Dictionary, Buyaka is either Jamaican slang for the sound of a gunshot or slang for marijuana. If you ask Falcons, GTA and/or Stush, they'd probably agree Buyaka stands for the latter, but also their new track. Listen, this isn't going to be for everyone. I wouldn't include it as a selection of yours on your family's collaborative Spotify playlist this holiday season but, maybe if your grandparents have had enough eggnog you can sneak it in and just tell them it's a remix of Neil Diamond's Heartlight and they'll start singing along. Either way, this feels like is a present from under the Christmas tree I was allowed to unwrap early. I guess naughty is the new nice.

Buyaka started at about 3am after leaving a club last year, I was kinda drunk and just made a rowdy loop out of a dancehall acapella and some raw drum sounds. The next day I listened back and I was like this thing slaps! I sent it to GTA cause theyโ€™re the squad and we have a similar take on these kind of beats. Once they heard it, we got in the studio and took it to an even rowdier level. At this point, we realized we had something dope so we hit up our homegirl Stush and she smashed the vocals... and Buyakaaaaa the rest is history.
