Hardy‘s mama ain’t home and that means it’s time to party. The Philadelphia, Mississippi-born country rock musician served up “Gin and Juice” with a twist on his newly-released cover of the Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre’s classic tune. The cover fuses country rock with California rap as Hardy lays out the itinerary for his night with the boys: roll down the street smoking indo, shoot some deer with the bullets filling up his pockets, and throw back some G&Js.

“A while back, I got a phone call saying that Jimmy Iovine, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg would like for me to record my own version of ‘Gin and Juice’ for the launch of their new drink, Gin&Juice,” Hardy shared in a statement. “I’m still in disbelief, but I am so stoked that I’m dropping my version of ‘Gin and Juice’ with the blessing of Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg themselves. Thankful for the opportunity.”

On his Instagram post, Hardy captioned: “I’m still in disbelief, but I am so stoked to announce that I recorded my version of this classic record for the short film Gin and Juice with the blessing of @drdre and @snoopdogg themselves. Thankful for the opportunity. Song drops tonight at 11p CT. Enjoy @dreandsnoop.”

Hardy kept the structure of “Gin and Juice” as a foundation for his own spin on it, which name dropped some friends and flipped Snoop Dogg’s “Gs up, hoes down while you motherf–kers bounce to this” with “Gs up, h-es down while you rednecks bounce to this.” In this version, the drink Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre took in the middle of the street is now swallowed down on an old back road, but his mind is still on his money and his money is still on his mind.

Hardy will explore more of this rock sound — and potentially less of the rap sound — on his as-yet-untitled forthcoming studio album. Two songs from the record, including “Rockstar” and “Quit,” have already been released. Earlier this year, Hardy performed at the Flipper’s Roller Boogie Palace Big Game After Party at Encore Beach Club inside Wynn Las Vegas. The massive, star-studded Super Bowl after party was hosted by Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre…You can bump the new cover below:
