Riff: Future – “I Be U”

Apr 21, 2014

I need it you need it/And we both fiendin/And I guess that’s our agreement/I’m naked, you naked/And neither one of us tryna look for a blanket

from I Be U lyrics by Future

The hollowed out Life Aquatic beat allows a little time for some self-reflection. It’s just a shame that the person staring back is a complete and total homer. He’s trying to spit game, but without the jewels and diamonds his words are about as enticing as a colonoscopy; [LISTEN].
