“Hit Me”

9:44 AM, and it’s a slow-going Thursday for me; dreading the next seven hours, tryna finish my year-end top 50 blurb. I’ve gone to the bathroom three times now, and I come back to (1) in my Inbox. From our boii Samuel Diamond: “Prove Mystikal isn’t the best active rapper. [Rap Radar Link] …can’t be done.” Now I can’t stop strut-dancing in my desk chair. And Sam is totally right. I was also just chatting with Keith, who’s all up in my gorilla with Kendrick Lamar, and here I am promising I’ll try good kid, m.A.A.d city one more time, while “Hit Me” is killing it in my earbuds over and over and over again. Also, Mystikal IS the [fellah] I’ve been missing. In fact, I think it’s about time I rip Mystikal from my bother’s and my high school AM MTV music video nostalgia and prepare for his Cash Money debut album Original coming 2013. Until then, I’ll satiate my nostalgia with “Hit Me,” adding that Mystikal “Yo, I’m back, and never left” hilarity.
