Welcome to Leaks of the Week, where we take a look at some of the best songs that have leaked and break them down. Leave a vote for your favorite leak on the poll above.
1. Playboi Carti and Unotheactivist - You & Me
"Ooh, I was born to do a thing (Beep)
Pull up in an all-black Range (Yeah)
Hop in this bitch, go bang (Squad)
And I speed race in that lane"
This Pierre Bourne produced collaboration between Playboi Carti and Unotheactivist features a catchy hook provided by Uno, which is complimented by the video game like melody present in the beat. I really like this song as it is not only fully finished, but is one of the only Carti x Uno songs we have heard in the last year after the unfortunate cessation of their collaborations.
2. Lil Uzi Vert - Underworld
"I can't blame no hoes cause actress shit is they profession
She try say I'm funny cause she the one got rejected
He try say I'm fruity cause he starin' at my necklace (pussy)
And everybody that kept it real always get elected (come on)"
While some may be surprised at my decision to include this on the list instead of the other Uzi songs that were group bought this week (sorry Alek), I really like the ambient melody in the beat and Uzis flow over the production. While it’s clear that there are flaws in the song such as weirdly placed lines like “I'm a t-rex that wish for long arms” and other lyrics that are a bit stereotypical of Uzi, the song still flows nicely overall.
3. A$AP Rocky - Don’t Do Drugs
"Got a blind date with a bad bitch from a dark place
On the highway to Hell in a i8 on the I-98"
I really like This A$AP Rocky track, which was group bought earlier this week. It has several unique features, such as the pitched down vocals at certain parts of the song, and of course the heavenly outro, which perfectly concludes the song. If I have any criticism for this track, it would have to be that it feels slightly unfinished and could use a bit more polish.
4. Pierre Bourne - Chase
"You can see the day
Shut up, ándale
I mean what I make
Denim on my waist”
This Pierre Bourne track features a simple but catchy chorus and a beat that is pretty typical of Pierre's production. In my opinion, this simplicity is what makes the song enjoyable, and shows that Pierre does not need to try too hard to make decent music. If I have any criticisms for this leak, it would have to be that the melody is a bit too high pitched and the mixing is less than satisfactory, although this can be expected from a track not intended for release.
5. Playboi Carti ft. RX Peso - Racks
Leaker: @Red Pints
"I put them racks on your ass"
While I really did not want to put 2 Carti leaks on here, the fact that this one had been sought after for a while and had some humorous lines meant I had to put it on LOTW. Despite the anticipation for the leak of the track, the song is a bit disappointing. The beat is very repetitive along with Carti's vocals. I can't really say much more for the RX Peso verse, except that he sounds extremely congested. One of the few things that saves the song from being completely not listenable are the funny lines like "I put them racks on your ass" in which it sounds like he is saying "in" instead of on.
I hope you enjoyed this edition of Leaks of the Week! This is also my first article, so please let me know what I can improve on.
