Arguably not since Muhammad Ali has an international star gone to jail while he was the undisputed greatest at his craft (apologies to T.I.), but that’s exactly the situation facing Weezy, who’s expecting an approximately one-year prison sentence shortly on gun possession charges. Well, if Wayne’s going out for a while at least he’s leaving behind a hell of a catalog. The latest and greatest addition to the Carter legacy is the brand new Run This Town [Freestyle], a cut that takes Jay’s smash hit and flips it into a lyrically driven devastator, complete with lines like “The crown fit, I ain’t even gotta try on. / The pistol mean business, that b**ch should have a tie on.” (Umm…about that pistol…) No matter the outcome, at least Wayne’s ensuring that we’ve got more than enough flows to keep us occupied for eight months or so. The Run This Town freestyle is the latest leak off of Weezy F.’s upcoming No Ceilings mixtape, set to drop later this week.
