With everyone forced to separate over the last few months, artists have taken to streaming their hangouts for together time. During a momentary pause in the Verzuz battle between Ludacris and Nelly on Saturday night (May 16th) and taking advantage of the latter’s internet issues, Luda debuted part of “Silence of the Lambs,” a new track featuring Lil Wayne.
Produced by music juggernaut Timbaland, the so far unreleased recording included references to Bill Cosby, R. Kelly and Roseanne Barr. “I love R. Kelly, but around my daughters I’m not comfortable,” the Georgia native raps in the opening verse, after dropping a reference to “Bill Huxtable.” Next, he states that racists are still drinking “from Roseanne’s bar.” Weezy comes in with his signature voice for the second verse, but later on, Ludacris makes his intent clear: “Rap brought me back to restore a little bit of balance.”
The 42-year-old didn’t preview “Silence of the Lambs” in its entirety but he clearly got his message across. Additionally, he hinted at an extended project with Timbaland in the works when he said “We got like 20 of these!”. Stay tuned for more news regarding this project.
