Produced by Jae Marley, Can’t Let It Go is six minutes of Makonnen and the Based God spitting bars about others “out they really tryna be us” and stealing their swag. Makonnen drops two verses and handles the hook, but it’s Lil B who steals the show on this one. Known for his off-kilter flow, Lil B takes things back a notch with Can’t Let It Go. While his raps are fairly basic, it’s his laid-back flow that offers another side to Lil B and sits well alongside Makonnen’s auto-tune warble.
While there is no confirmation about an album between the two, if it does eventuate, I’m very interested to hear what these two can conjure up after hearing Can’t Let It Go. Makonnen has a unique style that I think deserves more recognition, while you never know what you’re going to get with Lil B, so it’s always worth checking out his material.
Makonnen also hinted on Twitter that he and the Based God will tour later this year.
