Song of The Day for August 15, 2012: 2 Chainz featuring Mike Posner, “In Town”

Mike Posner definitely gained some street cred with the hip-hop faithful with his celebrated feature on 2 Chainz‘s new album, Based on a T.R.U. Story. Let me just say that “In Town” is one of my new jams for late summer.  Posner’s unique voice rasps sensually and successfully in the trash-talking slow jam.  While you would never put Posner/2 Chainz together by any means, the collaboration turns out to be golden.

Posner asserts salaciously on the hook: “I know you love me / and I know you’re down/cuz we always end up fucking every time I’m in town…”  Dirty? Yes, but maybe its the simple piano chords that accompany or even the simplistic, sensual nature of 2 Chainz’s rhymes. It gives “Birthday Song” a huge run for its money nonetheless.
