My Name Is Gustavo x Cult Classic is a remix of Playboi Carti's song "Cult Classic" with a line of dialogue from a Los Pollos Hermanos training video promoting Better Call Saul where the character Gus Fring (played by Giancarlo Esposito) introduces himself to viewers, saying, "Hello and welcome to the Lost Pollos Hermanos family.
