Heat is almost guaranteed when Payroll Giovanni and Cardo come together on wax, as we’ve seen in the past with their collaborative projects Big Bossin, Vol. 1 in 2016, the sequel Big Bossin, Vol. 2 in 2017 and last year’s Game Related which also featured Larry June and HBK Kid.
The next chapter in their musical partnership comes by way of “Eyez Closed,” a smooth new collab that was pretty much made for cruising.

Both Payroll and Cardo are slick as thieves lyrically on “Eyez Closed,” each flowing effortlessly over the G-Funk-inspired instrumental. The subject matter is your usual “We getting money!” flex that both guys are comfortable boasting and can claim with ease. Payroll Giovanni in specific keeps things extra flashy, as he’s clearly accustomed to based off the fur steez he rocked (seen above) while attending a Def Jam holiday party back in December 2017.

Hitmaker Cardo holds things down in his own right, and we give him extra props for being able to deliver behind the mic at the same time that his career as a producer is heavily booming. Major respect on pulling out the double time hustle, king!
Listen to Payroll Giovanni & Cardo’s banging new collaboration “Eyez Closed” below, and drop a few of your favorite lines from the track down below in the comments section:
Small circle, my n***a miss us with the small talk
Short temper, press a button I’ll come all off
Small coupes, but the price tag hella large
Who is you? Point me to the n***a that’s in charge
Tall ceilings, marble floors, big backyard
Drug dealing, turned us into ghetto superstars
No ceiling, she in a daze looking at the stars
No feelings, I was numb when I was selling hard
