Track #3 on Anderson .Paak's modern masterpiece Malibu is of the most grooving and soulful songs of the year, "The Waters," produced by Madlib and featuring BJ the Chicago Kid. Today, .Paak and BJ reunite on "Responsibilities," a new track from upstart Milwaukee producer Thane.
A driving bluesy number with an ill trombone, "Responsibilities" is very much in the spirit of "The Waters." It's the highlight of Thane's new 12-track album Topia, which also scored an additional feature from Mick Jenkins.
Puffy said it's all about the Benjamins
I'm good at making money but I'm wayyyy better at spending it (yes lawd!)
The heartache is killing me, I drink enough to numb the feeling
You know I'm chasing pennies
Mama said I need to see the bigger vision
But I'm broke, Mama, I can't pay attention
