Fight night is nearing at movie theaters around the nation. In a matter of weeks, Adonis Creed will return to the ring and share the ring with his former friend turned foe, Anderson Dame. The dramatic tale will be backed by music from Dreamville. Creed III director Michael B. Jordan shared the news during ComplexCon just a few months ago.
“I’m probably gonna get in trouble,” Jordan said.
“Dreamville is executive producing this album.”
Just a few months later, Dreamville has unveiled the first track from the highly-anticipated soundtrack. “Ma Boy” by J.I.D and Lute sonically portrays the perceived relationship between Creed and Dame. The two Dreamville acts trade verses about overcoming struggles with those who were with them at their lowest points.
“They play the game, but it’s rookie, my boy/Locked in chains, took my boy/You don’t know how that hard we took it, my boy/So I wrote a hook for my boy,” J.I.D raps.
As the song goes on, the theme remains the same for the most part, but Lute throws in a bar or two that could hint at the division that seemingly exists between Creed and Dame. In the film’s first trailer, its clear that Dame has become envious of Creed as he rose to superstar status while he spent time in prison.
“This life in me, not on me, my boy/Switchin’ lanes in Miami, but I can see envy, my boy/Used to get out the dirt, so you know that sh*t hurt me, my boy,” Lute raps.
“Ma Boy” is the first of what is to come from the Dreamville III soundtrack. Check out the single below.
