While the overall response to Brisco‘s last feature, Street Medicine lead single On the Wall, was for the most part positive, nearly everyone agreed that Weezy‘s Auto-Tuned hook was, well, lacking. Fortunately, the first official leak off the Floridian emcee’s forthcoming pre-album mixtape can only be regarded as a step up on the chorus front. Here, producer Allstar looks to soul icon Anita Baker for inspiration, borrowing a romantically chill, synth-driven instrumental and a silky-smooth hook from her ‘87 single, No One in the World. Over this tuneful backdrop, Brisco tells the touching tale of how a chance meeting at the local tiki bar led to sex, weed-smoking, shopping sprees and, eventually, true love. Ah, l’amour… Like roughly a gazillion other projects, the artist’s OG Kush street album is set to hit the net on the official holiday of weed-smokers everywhere, April 20. Following the mixtape drop, fans should keep their fingers crossed for the summer arrival of his endlessly-delayed debut LP… hopefully.
