So, remember five days ago when we wrote about how Lil Wayne used one of his phone calls from prison to record a verse for “Light Up” by Drake? Well, the Toronto singer-rapper’s official site, October’s Very Own, has posted an official “Rikers Remix” to the track that now includes Weezy’s bars (no pun). It’s kind of difficult to make out every line that Wayne raps, so expect to play this one a few times. But I picked up on a few somewhat-clever shit similes along with an extended goofy outro. Either way, Jay-Z, who spits second, still owns this track. Although, to be completely honest, Drake’s hook has been embedded in my brain for the past week.
You can listen to “Light Up (Rikers Remix)” at 2DopeBoyz or stream it below. Drake’s debut, Thank Me Later, is in stores now.
