New Lil Wayne feat Eminem - Drop the World

With Lil Wayne's new rock album Rebirth being pushed back since only 1 million copies were printed and now the leaked version will feature new tracks than the one that was released. Kinda sad really that Lil Wayne's late decision to push back the album resulted in a shipping mishap causing 500 Amazon customers, who had pre-ordered the album, to receive the it on December 14 when he had delayed the release to February 2010.

Who knows now when we may see the real Rebirth rock album since it's going to be hard for Dwayne to produce new tracks with his year sentence he just received.

Regardless, my favorite track on the leaked version of Rebirth was Drop the World featuring Eminem is a lock at being on whatever new album Weezy decides to put out. If he's smart, he'll just make it into a single right now since everyone who cared about his upcoming album is currently listening to it since it leaked.

Weezy F lays two classic verses on this track...adding a professional concoction of thought provoking lines laced with sadness, joy, confidence, anger...basically a 150 mph roller coaster of emotion if you will. Beware before you listen below, it's not for the faint of heart, the expletives are landmines releasing said emotion. Personally, it sucked me in like black hole on first listen. Pretty rare these days that I get a feeling listening to a track that makes me want to slow it down and pick it apart word for word to gain a full understanding of what an artist is trying to depict. Here's a little glimpse:

I got ice in my veins, blood in my eyes
Hate in my heart, love in my mind
I seen nights full of pain, days of the same
You keep the sunshine, save me the rain
I search but never find, hurt but never cry
I work and forever try, but I’m cursed, so never mind
And it’s worse, but better times seem further and beyond
The top gets higher the more that I climb

Lil Wayne continues on the second verse:

I know what they don’t wanna tell you
Just hope you’re heaven-sent, and you’re hell-proof
I-I walk up in the world and cut the lights off
And confidence is the stain they can’t wipe off
Huh, my word is my pride
But wisdom is bleak, and that’s a word from the wise
Served to survive, murdered and bribed
And when it got too heavy I put my burdens aside

Let's not discount too the contribution Eminem makes on this track. I've been extremely critical of his two releases this year Relapse and Relapse: Refill because they are a digression of what we had become used to hearing from him as he grew up quite a bit on each one of his albums. He admitted himself that Relapse came out sounding like the Slim Shady LP because he was still getting all of the drugs through his system and going through withdraw. He deserves nothing but credit on this track and also on Forever for staying away from the crazy and tiring one liners and actually rapping and sounding like himself rather than a corny ventriliquist.

Give it a listen if you're having a bad day and wish you could pick the world up and drop it one someone's f'in head:

Lil Wayne feat Eminem - Drop the World Great Collabo!!!
