On “Want Some,” Brooklyn rapper Max Burgundy spins a free-associative tale of foraging for mushrooms in the city, then Mr. Muthafuckin eXquire chimes in with a sing-song verse about smoking blunts and boning in the bathroom at an A-Trak show. When they say I’m sick and tired of all these motherfuckers asking me for drugs, on the one hand they just want to keep their stash to themselves, but the hook takes on deeper meaning when you consider that Burgundy was dismissed from an Ivy League school on drug distribution charges. The creeping bass, steady slap and eerie twinkle of fellow New York native Yuri Beat’s instrumental makes a perfect backdrop to this seedy, late-night romp. “Want Some” features on Burgundy’s The Murder of Mark Fuhrman mixtape, coming later this week.
