OMW (On My Way), the first single from Miami’s Billy Blue, off his highly anticipated album, “Revelations” features hip hop lyricist Lupe Fiasco. At first the song puts you I the mind of a 2 Pac / Scarface ballad. However, Blue instantly puts his own identity on the track and you are instantly brought back to reality that yep, Pac is still gone and Scarface retired a long time ago.
With such a catchy beat, you would assume that even the quietest of mumble rappers could make this a hit, however, Blue fails in comparison to his counterpart and feature Lupe. His lyrics are elementary at best, with lines like, “World’s a feather, please don’t make me pluck a nigga” he shows that he is far from a lyricist. If not for Lupe, this song would be a Fiasco (pun intended). As a matter of fact, as a feature, Lupe has the longest and most memorable verse. You soon think it’s his song and that Blue is the feature. Hopefully this is not a sign of what his album will be. Says Lupe in the song, “bad luck around suckers like a charms wrapper.” Suckers beware, don’t be charmed by this “rapper”.
