Note: There’s a newer video for this that’s much sexier (and more fitting.) Embedding’s been disabled on Youtube but peep it here.
This shit is already garnering a steady buzz on radio and MTV/BET, but I thought I’d spotlight it because it’s such a fucking hot record. As my friend Max likes to point out, Twista is a somewhat limited rapper; he basically has one style which he does better than anyone else, but he’s incapable of really switching lanes. That’s why it was really interesting to watch him blow up a few years ago with “Slow Jamz” and “Overnight Celebrity;” all of a sudden Twist went from being a gimmick rapper (and a largely regional one at that) to an A-list emcee, with a number-one album to boot. Five years later and Twista’s no longer #1, but he proves on this joint that he’s nowhere near retirement. Produced by longtime Twista collaborator The Legendary Traxster, “Wetter” is better than just about anything currently on the radio, and its also one of the sexiest records you’re liable to hear all year. I have no doubt this shit is on repeat in stripclubs across America, and with good reason. “Wetter” isn’t one of those “Tip Drill“-type records that appeal to some ridiculous male fantasy while disgusting pretty much any woman who hears them. On the contrary, I can imagine ladies of all stripes getting quite turned on by this shit, “daddy” references and all (word to my ex!) After the jump, check out a couple of said ladies (of the many on Youtube) putting the song to good use. Yee!
Oh, and one more thought. Can we get a remix to this with Luda???
And my personal favorite.
