T-Pain says that “You Don’t Know Sh*t”
Over a trap-infused production, Teddy P blasts his girl for her lack of knowledge. “This ain’t no test,” he sings. “‘Cause baby if it was, you would have to confess / That you don’t know shit / And you don’t know shit / Do you, babe? You be getting wrong answers.”
Then he bashes his girl’s nagging and her Instagram etiquette. “You be like, ‘Why she on that lame shit?’” he raps. “I be like, ‘You be on that same shit’ / On the ‘Gram with that stupid Boomerang shit / You need to stop it with the games, bitch.”
Sir the Baptist and Brandy take it to church on “Deliver Me,” their duet off the Chicago crooner’s new album Saint or Sinner.
In the inspirational track, Sir opens up about personal matters and confessions. “I remember my sister Mary would get beat by her husband, who was the deacon of the church,” he says. “The whole church knew, but no one would say anything.”
“Growing up in the hood, when you got to liking girls, you had to have a lot of them, that was the cool factor,” he says. “It might still be, but we rappers in hip-hop gotta change the cool factor. We gotta start loving on our loved ones. Never hit on a woman and I never will, but mentally, I’ve done the same damage. I just want to say I’m sorry.”
Brandy plays the role of Mary, Sir’s sister, on the Sir-produced track. “Love, deliver me,” she sings. “All he seems to do is hurt me.”
Sir and Brandy have not only been working on music together, but they are rumored to be dating. Brandy joined Sir while he made the promo rounds through NYC this week. “Your music has truly changed my life….can’t wait for everyone to feel your truth,” she wrote.
In addition to Brandy, Saint or Sinner features appearances from Michelle Williams, Keke Wyatt, Ray J, Killer Mike, Jordan Mitchell, and The Deacons. Stream it below.
Letoya Luckett is getting “Back To Life”.
The 13-track project, her first since 2009’s Lady Love, was executive produced by Joseph “Jo Blaq” Macklin and features the previously-released singles “Used To” and “B2L.” Ludacris, the LP’s lone guest, appears on “Grey,” a smooth and laid-back bop.
“After listening to [‘B2L’], I was like, ‘It’s time to do me. It’s time to do what makes me feel fulfilled and get back to that, get back to what’s best for me,’” she told “Sway in the Morning.” “I’ve given in so many different areas of my life, but especially with music, I missed it. That’s why I decided to title the album Back 2 Life.”
Listen to LeToya’s revival on Back 2 Life.
