Once upon a time, Mike Jones was the hip hop prince of Houston. Those days are long gone, but Jones' catalogue of Southern bangers is still surprisingly deep. One of his more celebrated cuts is "Flossin"; Monday night, Fetty Wap came through with a remix of the song in honor of H-Town, Jones, and the late Big Moe.
Fetty uses "Flossin" to exhibit his versatility, alternately rapping and crooning over the classic beat. If he hopes to curry favor with the hip hop fans who tend to look at him with disdain, he ought to remix these sorts of songs more often.
Catch me on the highway, Beamers, no Rangers
Big Zoowap ball hard cause they facing
I drink white and dark, I'm not racist
Drop bout 75 on one bracelet
I don't want your bitch cause she basic
I drink red, Chicago, not the Lakers
In my kitchen I love to bake it
Baking soda hit the pot and start scraping
