Joe Budden‘s first-ever collaboration with Lil Wayne, “She Don’t Put It Down Like You,” has been a long time coming. The track was first previewed live at a New York show back in February, and later played during a UStream in June, featuring a verse from Twista (which has since been removed). Fast forward three months and the single has finally been released, complete with a soothing hook from Tank.
Sonically, the synth-steered, drum-rattling anthem sounds like it was tailor made for Weezy’s catalog, not Joey’s. Coincidentally, it was produced by Canadian beatsmith T-Minus, who crafted the YMCMB rapper’s Carter IV hit, “She Will,” and is expected to contribute to his upcoming I Am Not A Human Being II album.
“She Don’t Put It Down Like You,” which can be streamed below, features on Budden’s upcoming mixtape, A Loose Quarter.
