Juvenile, Mannie Fresh, and “mother of southern gangster rap” Mia X updating the iconic “Back That Azz Up” for 2021 to encourage holdouts to go ahead and “vax that thang up”
Rap icons team up with dating app to recreate legendary hip-hop classic “Back That Thang Up” as a modern anthem to drive vaccinations
“I just wanted to do something positive for my people and to stand in the front to show that I’m willing to sacrifice my life not just for me but also for my family,” said Juvenile about the new project. “We don’t know what we’re facing right now but we really do all need to be vaccinated so we can continue to do our thing and survive.”
The only thing missing is Lil Wayne, who was featured on the original track. An endorsement for the Black-focused dating app BLK, which sponsored the video and is mentioned in the first verse of the rewritten tune.
