“mario kart (f. Travis Barker)” by Powfu
Canadian rapper Powfu challenges drummer Travis Barker to a game of “mario kart” in latest release for both artists.
Appearing on the rapper’s latest EP, drinking under the streetlights, “mario kart” is an emotional and somber look at a post-break up life where Powfu is reminiscing on playing the classic Nintendo hit with an ex. A sweet guitar intros the song that gets supported by subtle drums courtesy of Barker and automated group claps. The EP boasts three other tracks including the recently released “the long way home” that features Sara Kays & Sarcastic Sounds.
Despite the melancholy tone of the track, the 22 year old artist has every reason to celebrate as his viral hit “death bed (coffee for your head)” recently surpassed 1 billion streams which also led to his signing to Columbia Records.
The drumming legend and blink-182 band member has been busy lately as he adds Powfu to the growing list of collaborations this year which also includes WILLOW and KennyHoopla.
