Hate to turn this place into a Mouse On Tha Track fansite but DJ Dow Jones just released the no-DJ version of Mouse's Mr Lump Sum
which originally appeared on their What Da Streets Need 7
mixtape and I feel compelled to post it this morning because it was one of my favourite odes to capitalism last year and the song's reappearance has encouraged me to eBay a couple of presents I received this past Christmas that I'll probably never use or wear. **Juelz voice** THIS IS INSPIRATIONAL MUSIC!! **Juelz voice**
"What you tryna hold for, what you tryna spend, though?
I'm crankin' up them coins, I'm goin' Nintendo"
Mouse On Tha Track - Mr Lump Sum (no-DJ)
(From the internet; 2014)
Which has reminded me that I also have the tagless version of another cool song that originally appeared as an exclusive on What Da Streets Need 7
--Lil' Pooh & Mouse's Ask About Me
; a typical Mouse club-slumpah where Lil' Pooh once again
sounds more comfortable with his Baton Rogue buddies than he does with his fellow native Texan rappers:
"I beat the pussy up, I'm a fool in it
Club turnt to the max, you know that Pooh in it!"
Lil' Pooh ft. Mouse On Tha Track - Ask About Me
(From Lil' Pooh's Workaholic 2 album; 2013)
Which has also reminded me that What Da Streets Need 7
was the mixtape where Shy Glizzy & Migos' Wassaname
debuted. Doesn't matter if we're talking that version or the new remix
with Lil' Bibby replacing Migos, that sneaky bastard Shy Glizzy still completely jacked the song's concept from a 2012 Grip Plyaz track and then failed to execute it as well as Grip did:
"You remember shawdy? Coke bottle frame
Ass off the chain, you know... wasaname"
Grip Plyaz - Wasaname
(From Purp, Wind & Fire album; 2012)
More like Sly Glizzy amirite?
