Weezy's Homies Still Go Stupid

While @liltunchi has been busy getting denied court side seats at Thunder playoff games, he's been simultaneously letting loose new music from his upcoming tenth studio album I Am Not A Human Being 2. Serving as the lead single from the sequel, the @srbeats and @SAROMSOUNDZ produced track My Homies Still will play well as soon as it finds its way onto top 40 radio. It helps that @bigsean chipped in a verse and added his well know "go stupid, go stupid" that was heard in Dance A$$. Between the name brand power of Lil Wayne, the booty shaking beat and a little lyrical familiarity, it all combines well for getting everyone excited for Weezy's new album.

One thing I found interesting was the sample on the beat that was partially taken from Lil Wayne's unreleased track Pump That Bass (below)...

I always loved that track and wished it had surfaced for mainstream consumption. There's a throwback feeling to the dumbed down, bass heavy beat that really grew on me.

Update: It sounds like YMCMB ended up pulling out of the Hot 97 Summer Jam tonight. The cause of the abrupt cancellation of all Young Money related sets (Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj). It sounds like a united front too as @nickiminaj took to twitter and backed up Wayne's decision. Apparently the quick pull out was over Hot 97 DJ @Rosenbergradio making the comment dissing Nicki Minaj saying, "where is all my real Hip-Hop fans, not that starships..." A couple hours ago Peter made light of the situation via twitter by saying "Tonight just got interesting G." That's probably the understatement of the year when you lose two headlining acts.

We'll see what the fallout ends up being, but it's probably not a good idea to make your highest drawing clientele upset because the fans are going to be upset when they come to watch Wayne and Nicki and hear that your words prevented them from going on stage. I hope more details come out though because on the surface, it looks like it's turned into a seemingly sensitive week for Lil Wayne. Either way, enjoy his new single below and keep an eye out for his new album that is set to drop in the next few months...#IANAHB2
