The "women as drugs" rap trope isn't particularly original, but shadowy Chicago rapper God proves it can still be done well on his new track "Broke (You Remind Me Of Dope)." Over jazzy, grown-and-sexy horns, he offers a refreshingly unpoetic take on the comparison; its hook, You remind me of dope, coke, you'll make a nigga go broke, grounds the track in reality rather than romanticized intoxication. Earlier this week, 2 Chainz brought God out during an Atlanta set (maybe his close affiliate and Chicagoan Cap 1 linked them), and today God dropped a video entitled "TRU Freshman Freestyle"; more than hinting at a deal with 2 Chainz' TRU records. God's The Bible mixtape is due out May 20; download his last tape, Before The Bible, here.
