This summer, when we figured out why Based God was so damn strange, half of us realized there would be a point in time where his gimmick would work and the attention would lead to legitimate connects with legitimate artists. Then, with money in tow and opportunities to shine present, the Pack man’s lyrics would become less cooked and more bearable. Well, Hell officially begun it’s transition into Acapulco earlier this evening, as soon as 2DBZ dropped this Peoples’ Eye-inducing track into our shaken realm of reality.
I thought 9th was out of his mind when he sent this to me. But lo and behold this shit kinda works. Adding Phonte and Jean Grae to the mix – and I believe this is the first time Phonte and 9th have worked together since they’ve reunited – makes it that much better. I asked 9th how he made this happen, and his only response: “monumental….BRUH.”
What might be weirder about this semi-Little Brother-reunion appearing on a Lil B track is that the song does indeed feature ‘real complex’ verses from someone many people consider one of the worst rappers of all time. Consider us impressed.
