Every summer, when women start wearing less and going out more, there’s a lot of temptation. Temptation that can have novices and the naive out here going crazy and looking stupid. It can get even worse in August, when the temperature rises and people are trying to get that last bit of summer fun out of their system. But Busta Rhymes, comedian Majah Hype and super-producer Salaam Remi are coming through to make sure you’re not out here looking “Thirsty.”
Rap Gawd Busta Rhymes goes full Jamaican on us, speaking in patois as he and Majah Hype share some wisdom, trying to school the youths on how to deal with the womenfolk without acting parched. “Text her one time, but 30 my youth?” Busta Rhyme asks on the chorus, wondering if the young man he’s counseling has any sense. After Busta handles the first verse, he passes the mic to Majah Hype who’s got a pretty good flow and handles his own on the track with the legendary Bussa Buss. All of this is done over a percolating riddim of percussion, synths and a few musical hallmarks of Caribbean music.
“Thirsty” comes from Salaam Remi’s Do It For The Culture 2. Previous singles include “Find My Love” featuring Nas and Amy Winehouse, “Shake Dat Je’llo” featuring Joell Ortiz and “That Guy” with Bodega Bamz. Hit play below and let us know if this banger is right on time for some late-summer bashments.
