We’ll likely never know, so for now we’ll just have to focus on the music. Produced by StreetRunner and Sarom, Homies Still is the type of high energy, skittering beat that Wayne has made his trademark, when he’s actually rapping that is. Speaking of which, on the mic Wayne’s as schizophrenic as ever, throwing down line after free-association line: “Semi-automatic, no click click / we don’t feel you, like an elephant getting bitten by a tick (tick).” Throw in yet another punchline driven offering from Big Sean and love it or hate it, one things for sure - once again the world’s talking about Lil Wayne. Expect the talk to only increase as we get closer to the release of Wayne’s currently unscheduled I Am Not a Human Being 2 album.
