DJ Khaled wisely eliminates his usual bombastic adlibs for this somber ode to the unforgiving mistress that is Hip-Hop culture. Both Scarface and Nas use personification to paint Hip-Hop as a woman they’re still struggling to love. Nas’ verse is a little craftier as he incorporates media outlets like The Source, WorldStarHipHop and Vibe to enrich his point while Scarface utilizes heavier emotion in his voice to translate the pain of his rollercoaster love affair with Hip-Hop. This track will be included on Khaled’s Kiss the Ring album, due out August 21.
