Hip hop maestro Green Lantern (pictured) and crew are riding the Star Wars hype with a quirky track titled Awaken that uses the famous Cantina Band song from the classic 1977 film.
For those perhaps too young to remember the original cantina scene, it opens on a band of aliens playing jazz-like instruments for a packed bar of planetary revelers. Green Lantern, Woogie, and Toby Romeo keep the iconic tune central to their introduction, slowly edging in a deeper bassline until double-time hi-hats rain in to assert this track as a heavy trap contender. Interestingly, collaborator Woogie’s name is only a single letter away from the Star Wars franchise’s hairy “Wookie” character, most famously represented by Chewbacca, whose unmistakeable growls are used throughout the production.
