After debuting their brand new Super Bowl commercial for Mountain Dew and Doritos earlier this week, the hip-hop icons are back at it with a little help from Queen Kelly Rowland on their new single “Get It“!
Over a straight-up bangin’ Bangladesh club-ready production, Bussa Bus kicks things off with his signature rapid-fire flow. “Get on your mark, and get set, ready go!,” he raps. “Funny but these ni**as already know / That when I get on microphones / I done already shitted on ni**as, miraculous flow.”
Then comes in Misdemeanor, who doesn’t hold back either. “Everybody know Misdemeanor don’t stop,” she raps. “My records don’t flop / Got the game on lock / Clock tick-tocks, six karats on my watch / Now kiss my ass, haters, kick rocks.” (I must admit, I chuckled at the “flop” line)
Now, I know what you’re thinking… Where is Kelendria Trene Rowland on all this? Yes, Kelly is billed as a guest but she doesn’t actually appear on the track. Instead, her voice is sampled all over the beat, saying “get it, get it, flip it, tip it, dip it, grip it.” It’s reportedly taken from an unreleased Kelly track titled “Smooches” that leaked several years ago. While one part of me is wondering why they couldn’t just get Kelly to do a real hook, the other part thinks this it gets the job done fairly well either way.
I’M HERE FOR THIS. Listen below!
