Holy hell. The original version of Black Milk’s lead single from Popular Demand was, as my colleague observed, a banger.
So why try to improve on it? Well, when you can trade banger status for a quick-paced, soul-infused track, throw in a new verse from yourself and Guilty Simpson AND add some fire from Royce da 5’9″ … well, why not? It’s about as fleeting as the original, leaving you wanting more, and though they chop the anthemic hook out of the track, Black makes this smooth yet dirty beat sound like the entire thing is a chorus.
If you haven’t bought the album yet, go do it now.
