Lupe on the other hand is making it clear on the track off his upcoming album, Tetsuo & Youth (due out in early 2014), that he needs a girl who can go with the flow and keep her mouth shut. Over the laidback beat, Lupe says, “If you only love me for the money/ does that mean you’re gonna leave if they come and take it from me?”
But hopefully this girl will listen to Ty Dolla, who makes his threats sound like sweet nothings.
“Their producers and I did that about a year ago now,” he said. “They had a song they wanted me to get on. They [cut] it and said I could have [the track]. I’m just waiting on the right time to drop it because it doesn’t sound like the rest of my s–t. It’s next level. On some 2040 s–t.”
