T.I., ‘Here Ye, Here Ye’ Feat. Pharrell – Song Review
T.I. was flexin' on his last joint but on this certified street banger 'Here Ye, Here Ye' he goes ballistic. On this trumpet-driven head-nodder, the Atlanta rhyme-slinger shows that his time away in prison hasn't demurred his skills of demolishing the mic.
T.I.'s verses are extremely poignant as he reflects on the death of his dear friend Philant Johnson who was shot and killed while on Tip's tour bus in 2006. "Since Phil got killed I ain't never moved on / Like I’m still in the club where the blows got thrown / When my crown fell down and I got dethroned / Bunch of n----s around but I feel all alone / Like a piece of me is missing, guess it never came home," he raps.
In the end, T.I. makes it clear that he's still deadly with his rhymes and he's ready to sabotage the throne. He spits: "Godfather, a young Marlon Brando / Let me make sure they understand yo / Hear ye, here ye, you wise to fear me / Real n---as on their shine, much obliged, merci."
Pharrell Williams is also featured on the track , which he produced, spitting this warning, "I told y’all m-----f---as once / I think I’m hungry / Finna eat y'all n----s' lunch."
No word if this song will appear on T.I. next album, which he says will be either titled 'Kill the King' or 'Trouble.' Either way, 'Here Ye, Here Ye' is a monstrous track from the self-proclaimed King of the South.
