When Snoop Dogg released his highly-successful hit single, Sexual Eruption, loads of attention was immediately thrust towards the song’s up-and-coming producer, Shawty Redd. As the single made its rise towards the top of the charts, Redd decided to capitalize on the buzz and dropped his debut single, Drifter. Though both songs sound very similar (after all, they were done by the same man), DJ Booth listeners quickly pointed out the lack of hit potential on Redd’s rendition. Now, several months later, Snoop guest stars on the official remix to Drifter, giving the song a much needed veteran presence. Redd will drop his debut album, Jekyll & Hyde, later this summer.
