Ski Mask The Slump God has always been forward-thinking, whether that’s making a track addressing the recent H&M controversy or collaborating with rising Chinese rap group Higher Brothers. The Florida rapper’s latest stroke of ingenuity came in the studio with producer Jamz, when he needed to find a way to sample the theme song from Boy Meets World but couldn’t get the original recording cleared.
A Snapchat video of a studio session with Ski and Jamz was first spotted on Reddit. In the video, a violinist is shown recreating the Boy Meets World theme song, which is later incorporated into an absolutely wild track that Jamz previewed. The producer said, “Everything different, man. ‘Boy Meets World’ is coming up. Let’s get it.” Jamz also posted a photo of he and Ski Mask on Instagram explaining the situation.
Ski Mask is no stranger to unique samples, having flipped Missy Elliott’s “She’s a Bitch” for his song “Catch Me Outside” and her iconic “Get Ur Freak On” for his ASAP Ferg collaboration “ILoveYourAunt.” He’s also used clips from TV shows like SpongeBob SquarePants and Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends on previous tracks.
