Riff: Future – “Special”

Apr 21, 2014

You ain’t even trynna be special/You ain’t even trynna be special/You ain’t even trynna be special/I thought you was someone special

from Special lyrics by Future

Blee, blorps, and blops are the perfect intro for a song that makes about as much sense as the “poke” button on Facebook. Here he is calling out someone for not being special when it’s him who’s suffering from creative poverty. It’s unreal how he’s trying to pass this off as rap, an absolute nightmare.
