Listen: Shea Butter - @PilotJonze feat. @ONLYBISI @CashletePete

"It's that Black Boy Joy wrapped up in gold."

Last I spoke with Dave Michael Jonze, we talked about his complicated lyrics. I've been among the lucky few that have been listening to Shea Butter for the past couple months. You'd think by now I'd have it down like rap genius.

"This that Shea Butter Trap, That new escapism. Instill in my n*ggas with vivaciousness that you can't take from them."

I can't lie. I don't even know what that means but still, DO NOT DUMB IT DOWN for the masses. If they don't catch up. It's just another opportunity to explain and connect with your audience the way you know how. Complicated bars aside, Cashlete Pete joins the fold with his own gritter 16. OnlyBisi floated on the hook as always. In fact that doesn't do it justice, his voice is beautiful. I told them when I heard this song natural shorties are going to love it. Do me a favor, press play below. Do yourself that favor. After you've finished, find the next woman you see that smells like coconut oil, Palmer's formula, or uses Carol's Daughter as a leave in and play it for her. This song is for her. Dave Made Time is coming. Feel this.
