“You shouldn’t be surprised that Weezy’s new single is fire. He’s been on one all year.
A little past midnight on May 3, rap’s most powerful force, YMCMB, let loose a quick torrent of music featuring its three biggest stars. One song saw Nicki Minaj continuing what many see as her road to redemption with a fun, bouncing track called “Yasss Bish,” produced by and featuring the phoenix-like Soulja Boy. Soulja, who earlier this year helped Drake bring in the New Year with a remix of “We Made It,” seems to be YM’s secret conduit to raucous street singles.
The other track, “Believe Me,” is the first single from Lil Wayne’s forthcoming 11th solo album,Tha Carter V. A haunting number produced by Boi-1da and Vinylz, “Believe Me” features Drake, who delivers two excellent verses and a great hook. As is his won’t, Drake takes time to address his detractors as well as his success (“Doesn’t matter, could be winter or the summer/ On the road, I do One Direction numbers”).”
