The piano playing happens about 2min 30secs in
Being a famous rapper is strange life. Think about it: one minute you’re writing bars in your mum’s house and the next, you’re whisked away to a magical land of diamonds, vaginas, drugs and mansions. Is it any wonder that rappers have started to dress like giant babies with tatoos? As Lil Wayne said in The FADER: “I wake up, smoke weed, fuck bitches, get my dick sucked, a lot… and do this shit.” Chuck in a gold-plated SUV and you’ve got an adolescent Xanadu.
