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.
