D.R.A.M. Enlists A$AP Rocky, Juicy J for New Song ‘Gilligan’

Rapper-R&B singer co-produced druggy, ‘Gilligan’s Island’-referencing track

D.R.A.M. teams with A$AP Rocky and Juicy J for “Gilligan,” a swaggering new single constructed around multiple references to Sixties sitcom Gilligan’s Island. “Gone off the shit again – that’s just how I live,” D.R.A.M. rap-sings over a brash trap beat. “Lost like Gilligan on my own island.”

Rocky also nods to the series in his brief verse, rapping in a stutter-stepping rhythm, “Gilligan lost, turned trill again, need a vitamin, wait a min/ Better yet, a Ritalin for my adrenaline.” Juicy J, who co-produced the track with D.R.A.M., sneaks in a shout-out to a famous Memphis rap quartet: “I got hella pounds from the plug that I’m ’bout to face/ Three 6 Mafia probably fuck yo mama back in ’98.”

Rocky previewed “Gilligan” last weekend during a Coachella afterparty, Genius reports. It’s unclear whether the track is a stand-alone single or part of an eventual follow-up to D.R.A.M.’s debut LP, last year’s Big Baby D.R.A.M. That album, which blended hip-hop with neo-soul, featured the Virginia rapper-singer’s breakout single “Broccoli” (featuring Lil Yachty) and guest spots from Young Thug and Erykah Badu.

D.R.A.M. recently appeared on Gorillaz’ spacey new song “Andromeda,” included on the virtual band’s first album in six years, Humanz
