Holy Sh*t You Need to Hear Lil Wayne's "Quality Street Music 2 Intro"

Drama clearly saved the album's best for first because this is a vintage Weezy verse.

At this point Lil Wayne is like one of those games at the carnival. There's a pretty good chance you're coming away with nothing, or maybe a small stuffed animal you try to convince yourself to be more excited about than you really are. But man, when you win big and get to hand your date a teddy bear the size of an actual bear, there's no better feeling.

Lil Wayne on the intro to DJ Drama's new Quality Street Music 2, out today, is giant teddy bear at the carnival Lil Wayne. Or to put it more bluntly, holy shit, you need to hear this.

Tems, Mozzy & Pa Salieu: Best of the Week

Tems, Mozzy, Pa Salieu, and more all had the best new songs on Audiomack this week.

Weezy obviously felt like he owed Drama a little something for helping vault him into Best Rapper Alive territory in the 2000s because he clearly saved up some of his best material for Barack O'Drama. Or maybe it was Swiff D's excellent instrumental that had him inspired? That beat really makes a quantum leap when the drums and choir sample kicks in. 

Whatever the reason - Drama, the beat or a desire to prove he's still alive and one of the best after some recent health scares - we should all be able to agree this is some of that vintage Weezy we wish we heard more of. Multiple flows, multiple rhyme patterns, only one bodily fluid reference (a minor miracle for Wayne), this one has some real rewind value.

I'll have to listen to all of Quality Street Music 2, but I've got a feeling Drama saved the best for first. If Wayne on the "Intro" doesn't prove to be the project's standout track, then it's going to be one hell of an album. Long live Weezy F. Baby, and the F. stands for "clearly still capable of dropping Fire when properly motivated."
