There is no cooler rap song in the past year than Gucci Mane’s “Lemonade.” From the boasts about his “yellow living room set” to the minimalist piano hook courtesy of Bangladesh, the song just bleeds swagger. I mean, fuck, I feel comfortable blasting it in my gray Honda Accord, which is saying something. Now you may think I’m just gonna drop “Lemonade” on y’all below and get on with it.
FALSE. Instead, I bring Gucci up because his song is sampled pretty fantastically on the new Major Lazer/La Roux collabo mixtape, Major Lazer & La Roux Presents LazerProof. The song, a quasi-mashup of La Roux’s “I’m Not Your Toy” and a watered-down hook from “Lemonade,” is exactly what you’d expect: Gucci Mane Major Lazer-fied. So go pour yourself a codeine-infused lemonade and pop on this jam.
