"Costa Rica" is a posse cut recorded for the Dreamville artists' compilation album Revenge of the Dreamers III. The track features verses by Mez, Buddy, Jace, Reese LAFLARE, Ski Mask the Slump God, Smokepurpp, Bas and JID, while Guapdad 4000 handles the chorus.
The song is a riotous braggadocio cut featuring the nine artists flexing about their wealth and women.
Costa Rica is a popular holiday destination thanks to its extensive series of national parks and other protected areas. The country stands as the most visited nation in the Central American region. The song title is referred to in the chorus.
I got fans in Costa Rica
I got bands in Costa Rica
Guapdad claims to have both fans and wealth in the Central American country.
The recording sessions for Revenge of the Dreamers III took place in Atlanta in January 2019; "Costa Rica" was the final track laid down for the album.
A David Peters-directed documentary film, Revenge, chronicles the creative processes behind the compilation record. It reveals how this song was done in a celebratory manner as more and more Dreamville artists joined in the revels and hopped on the cut.
Dreamville President Ibrahim Hamad spoke about how he was happy the sessions ended on a high note with the recording of "Costa Rica." "It's a good way to remember the energy that was created," he said.
Only two of artists on the track, Bas and J.I.D., are actually signed to Dreamville. The remaining seven belong to other labels.
