Styles P & Sheek Louch - Famous (Freestyle)
"Famous" has been chosen as the lead single for Kanye West's new album, The Life Of Pablo, and while it has a considerable amount of pop appeal through a Rihanna interpolation of a familiar Nina Simone vocal, it's also features one of the most traditional hip-hop instrumentals on the album. The gritty, Swizz Beatz co-production is the perfect place for Ye to wax off some DMX-inspired bars, as well as a perfect backdrop to some new bars from LOX members Styles P and Sheek Louch, who have come through with a remix today.
The new version cuts the Rih hook to make room for more bras, but the Sister Nancy outro is still present for a couple of shoutouts at the song's close.
Thinking 'bout your curly head braids or your afro
Fit in in your snapback, your forehead'll crackle
And then snap and pop
Wanna know some street shit, n*gga, ask the LOX
