The LOX & Don Flamingo Join Forces To Teach A Slanguage Lesson (Audio)

New Orleans’ Don Flamingo has worked with hometown legends like Mannie Fresh, Lil Wayne, and BG but he’s earned himself a wider audience in Hip-Hop thanks to collaborations with the likes of Scarface, T.I. and most recently, The LOX. In February, the Yonkers, New York trio joined the two-time NOLA Awards winning recipient of the Lyricist of the Year title on a remix to his street anthem, “Slanguage.”

Released in February, “Slanguage (Remix)” also features Houston, Texas rapper Killa Kyleon (formerly of the Slim Thug-led collective Boss Hogg Outlawz). At the time it dropped, Don was gearing up for his first major nationwide tour, and working with who he calls “one of my favorite groups of all-time” helped earn the Roc Nation signee equally expansive exposure. For their part, Styles P, Jadakiss, and Sheek Louch lace the track with signature East Coast slang including “hommy,” “wing,” “rottie,” “gutta,” while Killa mentions “horses,” “barns,” “slab,” and “trill.” Of course, NOLA is represented mightily too, with “dog food,” “cuttas,” “spookin,” “clutchin,” and more.

Heads will likely recognize the interpolation of Too Short’s “Freaky Tales,” as well (and perhaps be reminded of Big L’s “Ebonics”).
