This ain't the rain, this is the snow

Boosie gotta the only rapper alive who can sell a lyric like "sometimes I need me a friend, I got noone to call/I need me somebody who'll listen, maybe I need me a dog" with appropriate amounts of gravitas and wryness, right? Thus, Smile To Keep From Crying is my own personal jam from his most recent album because it's the only track on there which doesn't make me depressed enough to go drown myself in a toilet bowl afterwards.

Boosie Badazz - Smile To Keep From Crying
(From In My Feelings (Goin' Thru It) album; 2016)


Also thank that chipper piano loop for being an oxidant waitin' to happen on an otherwise uncomfortably-personal LP chocked full of industrial production.

How is this album? this song is incredible.

Pretty hard-going subject wise and the beats are perfunctory for the most part.

The Rain is the best song I've heard in months. The whole album is nice; Boosie is pretty much a blues artist at this point

I like the new album. Some #FutureHiver on Twitter had a quip about ppl enjoying Future's pain, but Boosie's pain is empirically more painful, and the pain is expressed coherently. It would be torture porn if it wasn't justified by truth.

Did you enjoy the Touch Down album btw ? Thought it was quite the letdown, especially the beats were too clean-cut in a way.

Only liked about 3 songs on there and 1 of them was No Juice from the mixtape.

Standard boring industry album.
