Mike Posner...Panties...Floor

For over a week now, I've been listening to @mikeposner's new mixtape The Layover. Now I've already posted a few songs, so you might know where I'm going with this already, but there's little doubt in my mind now that The Layover should win mixtape of the year. As I'm writing this, I'm still second guessing whether I should write about other great tracks on the mixtape like Hey Lady feat Twista and A Perfect Mess (Think to This). If only I had the time, I could write a dissertation about why I think this mixtape is so great.

For starters, there is a huge void in the genre of thuggish R&B and Mikey P appropriately fills that gap with his slightly edgy lyrics and well-known Hip Hop cameos. I think of TQ when I listen to Posner and that's a good thing because it's been damn near a decade since I've heard something comparable to some of TQ's older tracks. No shit, I just counted 10 tracks on this mixtape that I've been constantly circulating on my daily playlist and to put things in perspective, the shelf life for tracks on that playlist can usually be measured in hours. If I were to give a award for best cameo verse on the mixtape, it would be between @TWISTAgmg, @MACHINEGUNKELLY and @CyHiDaPrynce's verse below. Pure thuggish, unadulterated sexiness that is more that worthy of a spot on the latest BMM.
"What you mean tell?
I don't even watch television
I won't tell a soul
And I don't own a telescope
You feel me?

I got this girl I met in Kansas
Originally from Wichita
She say she's from the country so I pulled up bumpin' Tim McGraw
I got a few dollars in my budget
Huh, so I scooped her in the rental car
Yeah, I took her back to the W
Reached inside the mini bar
And poured us both a cup of Goose
Then I rolled up, like a rubber do
First I lay you on the bed
Then I cocoa butter you
Then we do what lovers do
On top of the covers, ooh
Damn, girl you're sexy
You gonna make me baby mother you
Then she said, what am I gonna tell my friends
And this is what I told her, before I put it in"
Shouts out to @COLIONEJL on the production of the adult film quality tempo and soundscapes. There's a good reason why Room 925 has a parenthetical suggestion after the song title that I'll let you review on the tracklist. If the sexiness of Mike's voice doesn't cause a woman to de-clothe in front of you, then you're just not meant to hook up dude...#Truth
