Sorry we’re hours, internet forever late with this delivery. But yesterday we were on holiday-time, spent it outside windsweeping our bodies with the healing airs of a cold, burnt and salty smelling beach. We’ve learned not to touch or phones during moments like this, but on the way back to our asthmatic home we couldn’t avoid receiving this breaking Weezy-tunechi and Nicki-Roman news from the radio as some pardoned goon at Connecticut’s version of Hot97 hurried it up the Clear Channel playlist in between scheduled rounds of “Bottoms Up“. The original “Romans Revenge” is still leaping off shelves into the hearts of what will now become a new, more-performative generation, and we’ve got the Busta verse to rile us, too. But enough is not enough! Life is a puzzle to be worked; Wayne lets Nicki keep the bookends but speaks to the elders in pampers and young New Moon lovers in the middle. He came to eat you with a fork and a spoon but is also just puffing and passing this one. Wayne gives enough to lose back-of-throat control on the tail edge, then gets straight out and on to the next sweet and sour thing to say.
