Lil’ Wayne feat. Cory Gunz “6’7″”

Take a listen to 6’7,” the first track to leak from the heavily anticipated “Tha Carter IV”

Lil' Wayne feat. Cory Gunz 6'7

So last month, when we wrote about Lil’ Wayne’s first verses after jail on Birdman’s “Fire Flame (Remix),” we mistakenly attributed some internet rumors hyping “6’7″ ” to that track. As it happens, this is the song that people were claiming sounded like a “2010 version of ‘A Milli’ on steroids.” Apologies for that.

In “6’7″,” the first song out off “Tha Carter IV,” Lil’ Wayne comes out strong off the gates. He revisits that Weezy flow we’ve come to know where it seems he’s delivering lines so continuously that he’s not even breathing. The rhymes are fairly solid, and range from the humorous – “black and white diamonds, fuck segregation” – to addressing his stint in Rikers Island“I got through that sentence like a subject and a predicate.”

Cory Gunz holds his own and against Weezy with a Twista-speed verse. Though the beat, made by “A Milli” producer Bangladesh, at times sounds suspiciously like that “Carter III” hit. One of the drum breaks, in fact, sounds like it’s directly recycled from “A Milli’s” drum track. However, despite the re-usage, Bangladesh delivers another instrumental banger.

Better than “A Milli?” I’m not convinced. But “6’7″ ” is definitely a very welcomed raw-rap track.
