    Default Wale Gets An Assist From Jeremih On R. Kelly-Inspired ‘The Body’

    Hidden Content channels his inner Hidden Content on his new Jeremih-assisted single, “The Body.”
    The track, which is heavily influenced by the Pied Piper’s 1995 hit, “You Remind Me of Something,” is fueled by its hypnotic, erotic beat and the clever automotive analogies the MMG rapper uses to describe his love interest.
    “You remind me of my Jeep, I wanna ride it/ You’re something like my car, got the keys to them, need the keys to you,” Jeremih sings on the hook.
    Simply put, the Gifted MC’s woman’s got a body like a Benz that he wants to take for a spin.
    “A good woman is scarce to us, and I wasn’t prepared to love/ I know it sound crazy but your miles scare me/ I’m just here cause your character good,” Wale raps.
    If this first official single from the upcoming Hidden Content LP — which features a collabo with funnyman Jerry Seinfeld — is any indication, Wale’s new project is shaping up nicely.



    Hidden Content
    Psychopaths have a Hidden Content and grossly inflated view of their own Hidden Content and importance, a truly astounding egocentricity and sense of entitlement, and see themselves as the center of the universe, justified in living according to their own rules.

    Psychopaths show a stunning lack of concern for the effects their actions have on others, no matter how devastating these might be. They may appear completely forthright about the matter, calmly stating that they have no sense of guilt, are not sorry for the ensuing pain, and that there is no reason now to be concerned.

    Many of the characteristics displayed by psychopaths are closely associated with a profound lack of empathy and inability to construct a mental and emotional "facsimile" of another person.

    Psychopaths seem to suffer a kind of emotional poverty that limits the range and depth of their feelings. At times they appear to be cold and unemotional while nevertheless being prone to dramatic, shallow, and short-lived displays of feeling.
    Obligations and commitments mean nothing to psychopaths.

    But here is the crux: Psychopaths don't feel they have psychological or emotional problems, and they see no reason to change their behavior to conform with societal standards they do not agree with.

    So, it's not that You Remind Me of Something is sampled here, right?
    I did listen to the song trying to find any subtle sampling, but I'm not sure I'm hearing right.

    BTW, we'll see a lot of new 20-something rappers using Kellz music in whatever ways they choose to. (I know Wale is around my age, tho) Just like older rappers did with The Isley Brothers music. They grew up on Kellz through their moms and pops. I'm very open to that cuz, at the end of the day, the originals can't be touched.

    ^ very true. Rob set the standard and he has inspired an entire generation. All I ask is that you pay homage to Rob. That's a must to me.
