"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.

Composition[edit]

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]

Reception[edit]

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]

"Kanga" charted at number 7 on the US Billboard Bubbling Under Hot 100 upon the release of Dummy Boy and remained on it for two weeks.[7] Alongside this, the song debuted on US Bubbling Under R&B/Hip-Hop Singles chart at number 1.[8]
