Riff: Big Sean feat. Lil Wayne, Jhene Aiko – “Beware”

Sep 9, 2013

Cause you take anything and make it everythang/Kept my phone on silent ever since you got a ring (funny, right?)

from Beware lyrics by Big Sean feat. Lil Wayne, Jhene Aiko

Mainstream rap fandom is like being in an abusive relationship that’ll never change. More of the same crap here – shitty flow, lazy “hoe” references, laughs at own punchlines, and a flat, auto-tuned chorus on this smart-phone ad. The producer should’ve saved this slick beat for someone much better.
