Lil Wayne Featuring Chance the Rapper – You Song

In General by JessicaLeave a Comment

I love this song and I’ve been listening to it 8x a day for the last week. It came out back in September. Wayne lets Chance the Rapper own the track, and it’s because of him that this feels perfectly summer-like and sweet. I especially love the tongue twister of these lines:

You the best bride / And I’m the best groom / Wedding presents got my best man at the Best Buy / Buyin’ the Best of Fresh Prince for the bedroom.

The MJ sample means that I could never put it on a Songza playlist, unfortunately.

I’m writing again! I had a bit of a break because I was employed by publications that didn’t want me doing music writing for other places, which was a bummer. But that’s a common part of full-time staff life. Anyway, I wrote my first little bits for rollingstone.com and a new review for Pitchfork — my first review for them in four years. Links over on my clips page.
