"Even When You Ain’t Sittin’ Down You Can’t Stand Him"

The past week or so, the track below has somehow managed to appreciate in value to me, rather than fall down the never ending escalator of tracks I go through on a daily basis. You may wonder, what does that mean? Well..I'm not sure, but it's probably listed somewhere in the dictionary as an alternate definition to the word underrated, especially when you take into account it's a mixtape track that has yet to be heard by the masses. Don't get me wrong, there's always added potential when you see the (prod by Timabland) at the end of any song, but this is what I'd consider to be low-key for Timbo beat wise. It's a solid beat that caters to well crafted (albeit auto-tuned) verses. It ends up coming off as more of a freestyle than a traditional track, but that leaves a lot of room for Gudda Gudda and Mack Maine to shine.

As sort of an FYI, both of these dudes are flying low under the horizon creepin' on a steady come up. Just like a backup quarterback to Peyton Manning (Lil Wayne), there will come a time where both will get their shot at their own solo act. As a warm up check out Mack Maine's latest mixtape The Laxative hosted by @DEEJAYILLWILL and @realdjrockstar. Likewise, last year @imguddagudda put out a mixtape Guddaville hosted by the same DJ Ill Will and DJ Rock Star. For those of you that slept on it, press play below, you'll be pleasantly surprised with his Young Money Hospital track with @liltunechi.
Speaking of which, you know I had to somehow incorporate Lil Weezy in a post the night before he's released from prison. I mean shit even Bill Clinton is elated that Lil Wayne is getting released from Rikers...hah! Not even kidding, one play below...
I digress...and not just because it rhymes with con-gress, which was over-taken by the Republicans today mind you (showing the stats of the election is about as political as I will get when writing, in case you're wondering, I'm apathetic that only 11% of my age demographic came out and voted). I dislike political ads with a passion, but to make up for it I have a passion for creative lyrics (B+ segway? honest, it was rough at first, but ended well...TWSS). Below are a few reasons why I think Mack Maine (pictured above with Lil Wayne on stage) stole the show on My Reality.

Quotables from @MACKMAINE's verse:
"What you need, contacts? Tell me what you don’t see
What you can’t tell, I’m everything that he won’t be
Talkin’ ’bout your boyfriend, girl you need a man friend
Even when you ain’t sittin’ down you can’t stand him"
"I don’t ever kiss and tell
I’ll be your genie out the lamp or your wishing well
I’ll be your fishing pail and you can be my yacht buddy
Take you from A-Z, I’ll connect the dots hunny"
"You do me, I do you
Baby we could do us and I ain’t gotta say no more
I don’t talk too much
Thus far, phew I feel like I’ve been trying to sell a car
Is you buying?
(Lil Wayne) Haa, cause I ain’t got no time for a test drive"
There's good reason why the Young Money symbol looks like the Yankees logo...they're taking Hip Hop over. Proof's in the delicious (#BrianWilsonIsFromAnotherPlanet) pudding below...
