Playboi Carti – Love Hurts (Ft. Travis Scott) (Review & Stream)
Love does hurt…You see that elbow he gave DeRozan in Game 1 of the Raptors/Cavs series?
I guess you can call what Travis Scott and Playboi Carti are doing on this song ‘Trading Bars’, as each artist gets a chance to get their rockstar on over this erratic instrumental. Playboi opens the track up with his usual karate sounding ad-libs, but ultimately starts handing out bars, bragging and boasting about his reckless ways through choppy flow. Travis gets a little more melodic than Playboi does on his verse, sharing the same sentiments as Carti, but sounding like he fell and can’t get up vocally. All in all, I think the collabo is pretty decent.
Rappers get being a ‘rockstar’ mixed up with being reckless.
