New Music: Juelz Santana – ‘Santana Bandana’

Ay! Santana back. He got the bandana back.

Dipset’s Juelz Santana is back with a vengeance on his new banger, “Santana Bandana.” While it’s a call back to his Diplomat days, it also makes neutral references to this era.

“Been on my grizzly,” he raps over hard-hitting drums. “Leg hangin’ out the Phantom, you heard Drizzy / Bump-bumpin’ ‘Litty’ again, word to Meek Milly.”

A sample of Drake’s “Hype” verse plays when his lyrics are referenced, while Tory Lanez’s “Litty” chorus bumps after the Meek rhyme.

“Santana Bandana” comes just a couple of weeks after “Time Ticking,” a Santana-led posse cut featuring Dave East, Bobby Shmurda, and Rowdy Rebel.

Santana’s last studio album arrived in 2005 with What the Game’s Been Missing! His third official LP is still awaiting a release date.
