Trae tha Truth is on his DJ Khaled flow: getting a bunch of rap’s superstars to hop on his tracks and make hits, and boy does it work. Back at the start of July 2011, Trae dropped “I’m On”, a song with a catchy sample over a smooth beat with a special treat: verses from Lupe Fiasco, Big Boi, Wale, Wiz Khalifa, and Trae himself. And every single verse is legit. I had it on repeat for a month or more.
Then, about a week ago, the song was revisted by Trae, Big K.R.I.T., Jadakiss, J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar, B.o.B, Tyga, Gudda Gudda, and Bun B. Some dirty south, West Coast, Cole World, YMCMB, and UGK on the same song. And it may be even better than the original.
Hey, when Gudda has a good verse, you know you got a good song on your hands….
