Hip Hop artist Juicy J, Wiz Khalifa and Ty Dolla $ign recently released the video for their song “Shell Shocked." The single, produced by Kill the Noise and Madsonik, is from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles soundtrack .
“[Paramount] heard about how big of a fan I was of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and their whole legacy. I actually have Donatello tattooed on my leg, so when they asked me to do it, just being a fan and being a musician, it made sense,” Khalifa said in a press release. “In my generation, I think everyone who listens to me loves the Turtles as much as I do, so it just made sense.”
“It’s hella crazy being included in the music for the Ninja Turtles movie,” added Ty Dolla $ign. “You know, being a fan and everything, this is super surreal. ‘Shell Shocked’ is so different from what people are used to hearing from Ty Dolla $ign. Plus, Wiz and Juicy killed it like they always do. It’s a perfect song for this movie.”
Like a kid watching cartoons, Juicy J continued the excitement. "I grew up on the Ninja Turtles, so when I heard about this, I knew it would be dope. The special effects and art in this movie are crazy and producer Michael Bay is a legend. I'm excited to be a part of this film on the 'Shell Shocked' track with Wiz and Ty."
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles hits theaters August 8.
