iLoveMakonnen, Key! and Sonny Digital are currently criss-crossing the country on their joint "Loudest Of the Loud" tour, and today, they drop off a party favor for us. This one's called "Straight Top," and it's some of the best music we've heard from each of them this year.
A little more polished than Makonnen's wavier Drink More Water 5 cuts and the recent "Super Chef" (thanks Sonny), "Straight Top" is a woozy track that nonetheless demands some turning up. Key!'s verse mimics the hook of Makonnen's "Dodging 12," so it's clear that these guys are picking up some tricks from each other while on the road.
Same time, turn these young boys into scholars
Teach 'em how to whip it, how to flip it for the dollars
Or if they want Ferrari, or maybe fuckin' Jacksons
I'll fly 'em outta town and they be feelin' like a Jetson
