Gang Gang
by Polo G (featuring Lil Wayne)

Album: Hall of Fame (2021)
Charted: 56

Songfacts®:

  • Here, Polo G adopts a speedy flow as he shows his love for members of his squad and gives warnings to opps and snitches. Lil Wayne slides in halfway through the song, matching Polo's fast cadence as he shouts out his Blood-affiliated gang, Piru, and calls out informers. Weezy also name-drops several celebrities, such as Snoop Dogg and Martha Stewart, and nods to his Hollygrove birthplace.
  • Polo G has long cited Lil Wayne as a key influence during his upbringing. He described going from studying his wordplay and metaphors to actually being on a song with him as "crazy."
  • Polo G released the song on May 21, 2021 as the follow-up single to his smash hit "RAPSTAR."
  • Angelo Ferraro supplied the bloopy, metallic instrumentation. This represents the producer's first credit on a major recording artist's song.
  • Troy Roscoe directed the blue-tinted video, which shows Polo G eating dinner with friends before meeting up with Lil Wayne at a party. Roscoe's other credits include Fredo's "Netflix & Chill" and KSI's "Really Love."
