This cover / bootleg version of Lil Wayne’s Don’t Shoot Me Down is every bit a stonker as the original yet so much more at the same time.
Is it Goapele’s slow, peircing, soulful wane on the chorus, playing a long side Mateo’s ad lib’s? Is it the way Mateo super-smooth flow glides effortlessly over the dark, brooding beat?
I don’t really care, and it doesn’t really matter. This ladies and gentlemen, is how to make re-make an already stonking record!
I really really really hope it gets a release of some sort. Enjoy
Update: It will be featured on this upcoming mixtape, Love & Stadiums, due out on Wednesday. Yay, it did get a release – of some sorts, lol
