The Truth and Frank B have teamed up as the BadFellas and they just released their lead single “That’s It” to set things off. Bolstered by the cinematic and hard-hitting backdrop courtesy of DJ Qvali, the duo embody the fuck-you-respect-me spirit of Tommy DeVito, the super-charged Goodfellas character portrayed by the legendary Joe Pesci. In addition to featuring samples from one of the classic movie’s greatest scenes, “That’s It” captures that energy through The Truth & Frank B.’s raw and unfiltered lyricism.
The visual is a straight-up performance-driven piece that captures both emcees in their natural habitat and element.
The two emcees wanted to both pay homage to and build upon the idea of creating something “that’s very Italian, but bigger” like Scorcese and Puzo before them. This track, and the rest of BadFellas, serves as a “commentary on an era, a voice of a generation and a multi-faceted exposition of the fabric that makes up a culture.”
