Song of The Year-Pose (remix) by Yo Gotti featuring Lil Uzi Vert and Megan Thee Stallion
Untrapped is full throttle fun. Yo Gotti is a heck of a beat picker and Ben Billions really held him down on this album. He works directly on five of the fifteen tracks and they are all SLAMMING. Add to that Southside producing a song with Rick Ross, great beats from Streetrunner and this is clearly the workout album of the year (so far). This track stands tall above all else for the genius of its casting and the simple brilliance of its theme and hook.
A great rap career is much more than being the best rapper. Yo Gotti is a superb collaborator in his business deals as well as his music. Pose is overwhelmingly bass, built to destroy your car stereo and Gotti kicks off to establish the hook as well as the cadence all verses that follow will hold to. He sets the table and lets his guests shine. Megan Thee Stallion is a truly unique commodity. When you see the meme’s on Instagram that have Lil Kim on one end and all the female rappers now who have the same vibe on the other side….Megan is not there. Megan doesn’t want to be the new Kim or Nicki she wants to be the new Pimp C. She roars in a tight spitting window refusing to ever call a dude first, pimp rap on ridiculous.
I want to be on record as saying Lil Uzi Vert is the most talented Lil in the world and maybe the most talented of his generation. He closes the track with unreal braggadocio talking about people skiing off his neck; the kind of supernatural swag he flexed on Bad and Boujee. Yo Gotti has thrown the gauntlet down. You might put the piano sample on and spill your soul more than him but it’s going to be hard to make rap more fun than this. Not impossible but not easy.
