Certain artists need to make the time to drop a collabo album already.
First on most people’s list would likely be AZ & Nas. Others might say Em & Royce, or Warren G & Nate Dogg. While each of those would make hip-hop heads drool, the one imaginary album I’d pick would be from Do or Die, Johnny P and Twista.
Ever since they were learning hoe’s biology on Windy City rooftops while “Po Pimpin,” these quick-tounged Crook County natives have been dropping perfectly laced r&b/rap jams for more than a decade. Now, after a brief sidetrack, the classic collective have a reunion of sorts on Twista’s new album, Category F5.
Produced by who else but The Legendary Traxster, “Yo Body” is exactly what you expect it’d be. A slow-tempo jam for the ladies, breezily boasting about sweeping them away in luxurious automobiles…preferably Cadillacs. This one is actually upping the ante, by metaphorically comparing the two. Nothing provocative, but perfect for setting the mood, whether it be cruising the whip or surfing skin. Very gimmicky. Very effective. If they would just look around (Nas & Damien Marley, Red & Meth, Curren$y & Wiz Khalifa, ABN, etc.), they might see an obvious way to simultaneously fill their pockets and keep fans happy.
In the meantime, this will have to suffice.
