"Kanga" (stylized in all caps)[1] is a song by American hip hop artist 6ix9ine from his debut studio album, Dummy Boy (2018). It features rap artist Kanye West. 6ix9ine teases his signature catchphrase in the song.


The song was solely produced by Murda Beatz.[2] Though 6ix9ine only uses his signature catchphrase "It's f**king Tr3yway" once on the album, he teases it in the song with the lyrics: "How Ye? How Ye? How, Sway? Nigga, it's f**king...".[3] "Fefe" is the only song he says it in on the album, which was released as a single at a previous date and the reasoning behind this is that 6ix9ine had actually been banned from using his catchphrase on Dummy Boy.[4]


HotNewHipHop described it as: 'a club banger [that's] bound to get everybody moving.'[5] The track was viewed by Consequence of Sound as being one of the album's songs where: [the] musicality of [6ix9ine's] rhymes [shine] on'.[6]

Commercial performance[edit]
