Pimp C might seem like an odd choice to put over the "Tom Ford" beat, and that's because he is. Just before his 16 drops, we get a tease of a screwed version of the beat--which is kind of awesome--but Pimp ends up rapping over the OG instrumental anyway. His verse is pretty great, even though one of his best lines kind of points out the awkwardness of his posthumous placement-- "I don't fuck with nobody in this shit but Bun," he snarls, but chances are if Pimp were still around he'd be more than happy to do a joint with Timbo and Jay. Let's not forget the magic that happened the first time around.
Future- Day 1 (Feat. Yo Gotti)
As much hate as Future gets on HNHH, his tracks continuously end up among the most viewed. Perhaps it's the consistency of his bangers that keeps people coming back. "Day 1" is hardly anything new from the self-described askronaut, but unlike his ballads or pop numbers, this feels like something that isn't necessarily penned for maximum shelf-life, which makes it perfect for a weekend anthem.
Logic and Casey Veggies are similar in that they seem to actively operate in a lane just below the spotlight. For the type of artists that they are--technically gifted, with fairly low-key personalities--this actually ends up being the most beneficial for them, collecting a small but very loyal fanbase, which will support them throughout their careers. Here, their similarities play off of each other quite well, trading ambitious flows over a beat that allows their techniques to take center stage.
Possibly the least surprising lineup of guests on a Rick Ross song ever, the "No Games" remix benefits from consistency if nothing else. These guys wrote the rules on arena-trap, and they demonstrate their seasoned abilities here.
Chance and Gambino team up once again over a laid-back groove from the BTI production team of Swedish composer Ludwig Göransson and Glover himself. Chance is comically underused, but the song doesn't suffer for it, with 'Bino turning in two punchline-laden verses full of enough personality to carry the both of them.
