Historically, T.I. and Lil Wayne collaborations are very solid. They added another to the cannon with “Ball” in 2012, and return today with a jamming record called “Wit Me.”
Fans received a sampling when the song was previewed last week. It’s apparent that the duo aims for summer anthem status now that hear the record in its entirety. The Kang and Weezy take a beat with hypnotic synths and bouncy drums to task, and do a solid job trading potent bars in the process.
“Wit Me” will promote T.I. and Wayne’s upcoming “America’s Most Wanted” Music Festival, which has seen a few changes since the initial announcement of the show bill. Most notably, Future has been replaced by 2 Chainz and French Montana.
In an interview with MTV, Tip explained that there was no love lost for the “Karate Chop” rapper. “It was Future, something happened and Future pulled — he disassociated himself from the tour for whatever reason, and it’s still love — ain’t no problem with that. Now Chainz on there.”
Expect a visual treatment for “Wit Me” to premiere tonight at 10 p.m. EST on VEVO, as the song will be available on iTunes at midnight.
