Lord knows I’ve been wrong in life a million times more than I’ve been right, but the reasoning for Rocko releasing five new verses for “UOENO” over the next five weeks is beyond me.
*Dons armchair A&R fitted cap*
I understand Rock was put in between a rock (no pun) and a hard place with the backlash over Ross’ date rape line. However, with the song already picking up enough steam in clubs and what’s seen as the underground in 2013, attempting to force feed the public like this just seems odd; especially when the culture in Hip-Hop can turn without a moment’s notice.
Maybe they know something I don’t, and if that’s the case, I have no problem manning up and biting the proverbial bullet. But why not take some time, review the best verses and then repackage the official remix as the real single? It worked for Ace Hood a few years back when he flipped “Hustle Hard” into two extremely impressive verses from Lil Wayne and Rick Ross.
And there’s nothing saying the same formula wouldn’t work for Rocko either.
