In discussing the creation of the track for his new LP, ‘Vice For President 2‘, Vice said that he “wanted to present a really chill, lounge vibe so I hit up the coolest cat I know, Skyzoo“. Indeed, whether on his own or as a guest feature, Sky brings that, a style all his own. And he puts it on full display with a slick-talkin’ first verse that perfectly complements Vice’s head-noddin’ instrumental.
The chilled-out vibe translates into more than just a solid addition to your weekend playlist, though. There are a number of tack-sharp bars on here, especially during Vice’s verse. In addition to nods to Tevin Campbell and Floetry, he dishes out a line any ’80s and ’90s sports fan is sure to memorize: “You really can’t hold a candle up against (Warren) Moon and Randall (Cunningham) / And what you see me rockin’ & rollin’ gon’ make you scramble“.
Stay on the lookout for ‘Vice For President 2: There’s No Tomorrow Til You Wake Up‘, which drops Feb. 26 through Vice’s own United Grind imprint.
