Busy's take on Drake's all-star monster "Forever" cites many vessels of technology, but mostly it just got us wondering who was the first person to namedrop Twitter in a song. Pretty sure Nore was early in the cut with his verse on Cassie's "Must Be Love" remix in first quarter '09 (She hit me on Twitter/then I gave her my email/Told her that my love come free/Just like Gmail—a verse that we're almost positive happened in real life). Surely Puff has mentioned it somewhere, or has an archived verse of Biggie shouting it out that he plans to release on another "duet" album in 2012. But Busy's Twitter check is the best thus far, coming amidst a barrage of brags til the beat drops out and he goes Whoa, as if he can't believe he's even uttered its consonants. The real wild thing about this is that he released this song via his Twitter, which further proves our theory that life in the internet is just an elaborate labyrinth made of mirrors—and if we take a wrong turn we will be eaten by a super-scary fanged clown in giant rubber shoes. Then our bones will get ground up and made into cat food. Shout to Poquito and Mochipet back home.
