Published Aug 27, 2015New Orleans singer August Alsina has connected with hometown hero Lil Wayne for a new single called "Why I Do It." Do you want to know what motivates the pair to keep themselves in the game? Well, the single should lay things out a bit better for you.
The track itself is pretty inspirational, mixing a steady and playful thump and a swirl of flutes and brass into an optimistic arrangement. Up front, an AutoTuned Weezy explains that he makes, roughly, about a milli a week. He also tells his foes to quit ooglin' on his business, though he brags about making movies with his girlfriend. It's, uh, a bit of a mixed message.
Alsina offers a more softened up set of lines that, nonetheless, talk about enjoying the finer things in life. He's looking to win it all, apparently, so good luck on him!
