Lil Wayne has finally dropped the first single from his upcoming sequel album I Am Not A Human Being 2, but there’s a twist: The track, “My Homies Still,” has a surprising feature from G.O.O.D. Music rapper Big Sean. It was only last weekend that Wayne, after hearing Pusha T’s “Exodus 23:1,” went on the attack against the Clipse rapper and, by association, the entire G.O.O.D. Music roster. Wayne’s most recent song, “Goulish,” was pure retaliation.
That said, Wayne’s fondness for Big Sean and his “Dance (A$$)” single from 2011 is temporarily overshadowing his ill-will towards Pusha. Using that song’s ubiquitous “Go stupid” hook and a very similar beat produced by STREETRUNNER and Saron from Spliffington Management, “My Homies Still” is a bouncy, rap-heavy track that’s ready for radio.
Similar to what Wayne did with Rick Ross’ “I’m Not A Star” on their collaborative cut “John,” Weezy has flipped an already-popular track into something new and even huger sounding. With no apparent disses, Wayne drops punchline-heavy verses that touches on women, skating and other trademark topics.
As the track was already recorded and slated to be a single, Young Money president Mack Maine preemptively addressed the potential conflict from including Sean. “That was a great song that was made before that situation happened,” he told MTV News. “I’m not ’bout to go into the studio and tell Wayne to take [Big Sean] off. Wayne not tryna take him off – he’s good peeps, he’s fam.”
I Am Not A Human Being 2 is expected to drop later this summer.
