ASAP Rocky and Lil B Want to “Be Somebody” on New Clams Casino Track
Clams Casino unleashes a new single called "Be Somebody" featuring A$AP Rocky and Lil B. The record will land on Clammy Clam's new album, 32 Levels. The 12-track project - complete with instrumentals if you cop the deluxe version - will drop tomorrow (July 15).
On his verse, Lil B spits, "Yeah, I make it rain by the corner store/She said I made it far but I wanted more/I got drivers with no cars/I had battles with no scars/If you wanna be Mufasa/You could die too, my bullets givin' Oscars/And my guns givin' Grammys/I know Clams got me, A$AP my family/So how can I lose?/When I know that BasedGod, he made new rules/Gave me the juice, passed off diamonds/Hot in the winter, and cold when it's shinin'/Wanna be great, I just wanna be great/The BasedGod's perfect, but that's just the surface/So what we talkin' 'bout? Devil's steady lurkin'/Double edged sword, draw blood when you turnin'."
The BasedGod continues, "In my condo that I designed/I would never buy it if it wasn't mine/I don't need a gun, I just need the bullets/Money not racist, my drugs caucasian/Guns from Russia, rocks from Sweden/No ones believes me, the world thinks I'm evil/But what if I'm poor? I guess I always wanted more."
Zane Lowe spoke with Clams Casino about how the track came about, explaining that Pretty Flacko wanted the beat for his own album, At.Long.Last.A$AP.
Clams says, "I made the beat at home. It's also, there's a Mikky Ekko sample on there. That's his voice in the background, and I went over to Rocky's place in New York and I was playing him some stuff and he was working on his second album. I was just starting to work on mine, and I played [Rocky] a beat, and I was like 'This is the new beat. You can't have it, but if you want to have it, you can do it on my album.'"
The New Jersey-based producer continues, "Eventually [Rocky] said he wanted it for his [album], and I said 'Alright fine, we'll trade something' .. .He didn't end up finishing it in time for his album, so then I was like, 'Okay, I got it back.'"
