Song of the Day #3,506: ‘XO TOUR Llif3’ – Lil Uzi Vert

Lil Uzi Vert takes the #6 spot on Village Voice’s annual Pazz & Jop poll with a track titled ‘XO TOUR Llif3’ (translating, I suppose, to “XO Tour Life”).

According to the invaluable website Genius, this song is “about Uzi’s relationship issues with ex-girlfriend, Brittany Byrd, and substance abuse.” A rap break-up song? That could be interesting.

Not bad, but not particularly good either. Definitely not the 6th best song of the year, but I’ve never been one to understand music critics.

[Intro]
Are you alright?
I’m alright, I’m quite alright
And my money’s right
8… (yeah)
Countin’ them bands
All way to the top ’til they be fallin’ over
(yeah, yeah, yeah)
Countin’ them bands
On my way to the top ’til we fallin’ over

[Chorus]
I don’t really care if you cry
On the real, you shoulda never lied
Shoulda saw the way she looked me in my eyes
She said: “Baby, I am not afraid to die.”
Push me to the edge
All my friends are dead
Push me to the edge
All my friends are dead
Push me to the edge
All my friends are dead
Push me to the edge

[Verse 1]
Phantom that’s all red, inside all white
Like somethin’ you ride a sled down, I just want that head
My Brittany got mad, I’m barely her man now
Everybody got the same swag now
Watch the way that I tear it down
Stackin’ my bands all the way to the top
All the way ’til my bands fallin’ over
Every time that you leave your spot
Your girlfriend call me like, “Come on over!”
I like the way that she treat me
Gon’ leave you, won’t leave me, I call it that Casanova
She say I’m insane, yeah
I might blow my brain out (hey)
Xanny, help the pain, yeah
Please, Xanny, make it go away
I’m committed, not addicted, but it keep control of me
All the pain, now I can’t feel it
I swear that it’s slowin’ me, yeah

[Chorus]
I don’t really care if you cry
On the real, you shoulda never lied
Saw the way she looked me in my eyes
She said: “I am not afraid to die.”, yo
All my friends are dead
Push me to the edge (yeah)
All my friends are dead, yeah, ooh
Push me to the edge
All my friends are dead, yeah
All my friends are dead, yeah

[Verse 2]
That is not your swag, I swear you fake hard
Now these niggas wanna take my cadence
Rain on ’em, thunderstorm, rain on ’em (ooh, yeah)
Medicine, lil’ nigga, take some (yeh, yeh)
Fast car, NASCAR, race on ’em
In the club, ain’t got no ones, then we would beg them
Clothes from overseas, got the racks and they all C-Notes
You is not a G though
Lookin’ at you stackin’ all your money, it all green though
I was countin’ that and these all twenties, that’s a G-roll

[Bridge]
She say: “You’re the worst, you’re the worst.”
I cannot die because this my universe

[Chorus]
I don’t really care if you cry
On the real, you shoulda never lied
Shoulda saw the way she looked me in my eyes
She said: “Baby, I am not afraid to die.”
Push me to the edge
All my friends are dead
Push me to the edge
All my friends are dead
Push me to the edge
All my friends are dead
Push me to the edge

    Eh…I just feel there is a monotony to these rap songs, mostly do to a lack of any real hook or chorus.

    Monotony is an understatement
