Michael's Music Monday, Vol. 4

Please forgive the missing post from last week - I was on holiday. Without further ado, let's jump right back into stride, shall we?

I have decided to review Lil Wayne (Dwayne Carter)'s "Six Foot Seven Foot." This brilliant song features Cory Gunz. Sampling "Day-O (The Banana Boat Song)" by Harry Belafonte, the duo really spit a nasty lyric. The first single off of Lil Wayne's newest album, The Carter IV, and his second since being released from prison, the song is produced by Grammy winning producer Bangladesh. This is the second time the trio have collaborated together. You might remember "A Milli" back in 2008...

I can recall hearing this song for the first time. Unaware that it was Lil Wayne, I thought the tune was catchy, especially since it was mixed out of the song it is sampled from. Nice DJing.

Relying heavily on repetition (the female voice [I think?] with terrible diction in the background that repeats whatever she happens to say over and over again), extremely thick bass (enough to get any grind session started), and sheer poetic talent (Wayne adding to his credibility as lyrical king within the rap community as he brings up Gunz along with him), "Six Foot Seven Foot" is an extremely flexible tune that is suitable in any situation because of the diversity in what it brings to the table musically.
