Mavado said the link came through Grammy-winning producer Jerry ‘Wonder’ Duplessis.
“I was told that LL was in town (New York City) and that he was interested in doing a collaboration with me, so we met up and went in the studios and began recording,” he said.
Hustler was recorded in the Big Apple and produced by Duplessis. The song was released in late July.
A video for the track was shot in sections of Flatbush and Queens, New York.
Mavado has been working the pop circuit since inking a record deal with DJ Khaled’s We The Best rap label. Other collaborations include Emergency featuring rapper Ace Hood and Survivor with singer Akon.
