14-year-old me would be so happy that 23-year-old me could experience this long-awaited release. This piece of folklore is proof that miracles do happen and gives us a glimmer of hope for all of those other supposed collab albums of yore.
(This also has the unprecedented distinction of being both a Throwback Thursday and a new music post all in one)
This song in particular is special because 2009’s controversial The Carter documentary featured a clip of Wayne recording his verse and me and (maybe) the rest of the viewing audience wondered if it would materialize in an official project at some point. It did after nine years but better late than never as the saying goes.
I should find my old iPod nano sync this whole project to it just for nostalgia’s sake.
