Now that’s how you let the beat build, bitch

Like the rest of the world, I have been listening to Tha Carter III┬ásince it came out in June. My favorite song on this album seems to change every month or so. First, it was “Lollipop”, then “3Peat”, “Shoot Me Down”, “Mr. Carter”, and of course, “A Milli”. And “Let the Beat Build” is obviously my new favorite and I think that it will continue to be for a while. The background music, sampled from Eddie Kendrick’s “Day by Day” is very chill and they lyrics and overall feel of the song make it one of the most relaxing on the album. The lyrics are also pretty nice. My favorite line has to be “I’m not racing, I’m just sprinting”. Awesome.

“I meant every tear and I’m still on that street shit back to the beat bitch
Now that’s how you let the beat build bitch”
