‘Young LA’ has had Atlanta and pretty much most of America singing along to his single ‘Ain’t I’, now all he needs is an official co-sign from an established and internationally known artist, I guess it’s a good thing he’s signed to T.I.’s Grand Hustle label, as the King of the South jumps on along with Young Dro for the remix, the thing is, whilst helping Young La and Young Dro make a name for themselves, T.I. has only gone and stolen the show with his verse.
The beat sounds similar to Boyz N Da Hood – Dem Boyz, but that isn’t a bad thing, because that was a good song. Back to ‘Ain’t I’, When Young LA started rapping it reminded me of Shawty Lo, but that could just be the southern drawl, which brings us to Young Dro, always composed on the mic and his verse is quite good but I just feel the last verse brings the best out of the track and yes you’ve guessed it..T.I.
With lines like, “Ain’t I laughing at these haters tryna take a shot at me, They don’t know which way to go..i make it easy..follow me” (could this be the reply to a certain Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson?) either way, T.I. is on top of his game and although unfortunate for Young LA and the track, his cameo is certainly a fortunate for music and I look forward to hearing more when he returns from jail (Hopefully even better)
I actually feel bad that I don’t really have much to say about the first two verses, still, I hope you enjoy the track as much as I did if not more.
..and if that wasn’t good enough for you, here is Bow Wow’s version of it:
