Drake Flips Lil Boosie’s “Smoking On Purple” Lyric On Justin Timberlake Album
Justin Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience 2 Of 2 is available to stream for free before it drops on September 30. The pop star’s album features only two guests—Drake and Jay Z. On the third track titled “Cabaret,” Drizzy comes through with long-winded verse over production by Timbaland.
As promised during last night’s CRWN interview at NYU with Rap Radar’s Elliott Wilson, the Toronto rap star does reference Lil Boosie on JT’s album. The line goes, “I’m trying to ease your mind, word to Boosie/Pole in my bedroom when I’m moved in.” He continues with more smooth rhymes about a woman who likes to have fun at a cabaret.
You can listen to track over on iTunes along with the entire album. Here’s Boosie’s original record “Smoking on Purple” featuring Webbie that appeared on Bad Azz. The lyric is below.
“Smokin’ on purple ease my mind/This that shit that we get high to… yeah”
UPDATE: Drake could also be referencing “Let Me Ease Your Mind.” Either way, shouts to Boosie for making two dope songs.
