No, this is not a new track, and no, this is not the reconciliation of the decade. It's simply Throwback Thursday, a time when we must look to the glories of the past, and celebrate some of the finest hip-hop bangers. And while we're all aware of the familial drama that's eroding the Cash Money camp from the inside, there was a time when Birdman and Lil Wayne were inseparable, crafting jams together and representing one of the biggest and most lucrative record companies in the world. Now, it almost hurts to look at what became of the men who were once so close - hell, Lil Wayne used to call him "daddy," a label which Birdman wore proudly.
Now, their relationship has undergone some heavy public strain, and Birdman took to Instagram live to unleash a frustrated rant aimed at anyone trying to slide up in his business. In honor of said rant, it seemed only right to revisit some simpler times, when Birdman and Lil Wayne moved as one. If you don't remember, there was a time when legions were proclaiming to be "poppin' champagne like they won a championship game," and that's all because of "Pop Bottles." Simple in both lyrical content and overall concept, the jam quickly became a go-to banger at parties, clubs, and basically anywhere a bottle happened to be within a twenty-foot radius.
Both Weezy and Birdman deliver some solid verses here, as Wayne goes heavy on the sexual innuendos, while Birdman boasts about his financial accomplishments. It's not exactly a showcase of Wayne's lyrical prowess, but he gets the job done, setting things off on a high-energy, charismatic note. This is one of those tracks that goes hard, even as it approaches a ten year anniversary. And when that times come, there's only one thing to do: start with straight shots, and then pop bottles.
Fresher than a mother fucker, yep I'm a mother fucker
No I won't take your girl, but I'll sure take her tongue from her
Can't you tell I'm in love woman, like no other woman
Oh I'm sorry sweetheart, I thought you were my other woman
