Mullage ft. T-Pain - Trick’n
Once I’m finished with today’s track reviews , I think I’m going to write my state legislators and suggest that the slogan, “It ain’t Trickn if you got it.” be prominently displayed on all U.S. currency. It’s a strange world we live in where hip-hop artists are better financial role models than banks, automakers, and the federal government, but it would certainly be an improvement over the unspoken motto that got us into our current economic mess: ‘It ain’t trickin’ if you use a credit card/get it from China.” Okay, rant over. This new single (and first Booth feature) from ATL duo Mullage sees B Boi and B Town teaming up with hookman extraordinaire T-Pain to assure a special lady that they’re plenty loaded enough to supply her with everything her heart desires—and pay for it in paper, not plastic. Sampled from Diana Ross’ Missing You, Raw Smoove‘s smoove boardwork is the cherry on top of this economically-sound slow-jam sundae—mixed metaphors aside, though, the record has hit potential to spare, and is sure to stir up anticipation for the recent Jive signees’ debut album, The Element Of Versatility, which has yet to receive a release date.
