Trees of Life

How come Ty Dolla $ign's work for such Atlantic roster hacks like Wiz Khalifa, B.o.B, Snow Tha Product, and Lupe Fiasco is so much better than all of his own post-Beach House 2 music? This new 8 minute double song for Wiz sounds like it was scored for a Terrence Malick movie full of shots of cumulus clouds slowly dissolving over bucolic weed crops. Usually such a thing would violate multiple Martorialist codes and send ya boy scrambling for the nearest A-Mafia song, yet Refresh/Say No More here somehow manages to be the most gorgeous song since D'Angelo's Really Love.

Wiz Khalifa ft. Ty Dolla $ign - Refresh/Say No More
(From Refresh/Say No More single; 2015)

Enjoy this one now before Wiz fills those 8 minutes out for the inevitable Taylor Gang remix with Berner, Chevy Woods and that rapping tattooist bloke who Wiz only signed so he could get free ink work for the next couple of years.
