New Music: Lil Wayne, Yes [ft. Pharrell]

Song: Yes [ft. Pharrell]
Artist: Lil Wayne
Album: The Hottest Nigga Under the Sun (mixtape)
Label: Cash Money / Universal Records
Producer: unknown
Notes: none
Analysis: I really hate posting songs to projects that don’t even exist yet, but I have to make an exception for this song because it features two of my favorite hit-or-miss artists of all time. Lil Wayne & Pharrell go back and forth on a beat that reminds me of a mix between Beastie Boys’ ‘Slow and Low’, and Clipse’s ‘Mr. Me Too’. The beat is definitely heavy, and I’ve been liking it more and more with each listen, especially the hydrolic sound effects behind each “yes”. You have to both love, and shake your head at Wayne’s ridiculous lyrics, though: (Yes I do it big, call me little astronomical / Weezy F. Baby and the F is for phenomenal), and (keep my hair shampooed and yes I keep my hands sanitized). I have absolutely no idea what this track is from, but the NMC leaked it out to the net yesterday, and I couldn’t justify not posting. It will be interesting to see if an actual album from either artist materializes out of this one track.

EDIT: The song is actually from a mixtape called The Hottest Nigga Under the Sun, which came out on January 31. There’s a few other tracks worth checking for (‘New Orleans Maniac’, ‘Blow My Mind’ and ‘Yeahhh’ are standouts), but most of it is just throwaways. Download it for yourself over at

  2. Oh yeah, I got the mixtape a few weeks after the song came out and never came back to change it. Thanks.
