T-Wayne is back! When frequent collaborators T-Pain and Lil Wayne cook up a song you usually know what it’s going to taste like. However, on You Know What It Is the duo gives listeners a new dish that tastes far different than their normal club bangers like Got Money. On What It Is, production team Tha Bizness creates a jazzy backdrop with baby bottom smooth strings while Pain and Wayne sweet-talk a special lady. For his part T-Pain shines with a dope hook - he assures his boo she’s got a “waist like a wasp” – and a very strong rap verse with some show stealing lines like: “I ain’t trying to butter you up/ I’m trying to f*** you in the kitchen, let me butter you up.” On the other hand Weezy has the middle and end verses on the record, but sounds lazy and doesn’t begin to touch Pain’s performance. No word yet on what project Beehive is attached to, but let’s see if the Booth is eager to eat this one up.
