It would be an understatement to say the whole blogosphere has been eagerly anticipating a new verse from 3 Stacks. On this nearly 8-minute track, off Rick Ross’s upcoming God Forgives, I Don’t, we get an instant classic about the time constraints created by the standard sixteen-bar format. Ross opens nicely and just when when you are about to die of anticipation, the Outkast gracefully and flawlessly hops on.

Andre blesses us with an absurdly innovative flow for about two straight minutes followed by an impressive, psychedelic and Hendrix-esque guitar solo to conclude the experience. The prolonged verse, lasting far longer than sixteen bars, jumps sporadically, but seamlessly between topics imparting wisdom in a true stream of consciousness. The legend manages to both make insightful social commentary and capture a wide range of human emotion through his distinct and immediately recognizable voice. Despite his hiatus, the ATLien shows no signs of rust as he navigates the J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League instrumental with ease. God Forgives, I Don’t hits stores on July 31st with many other notable features including Dr.Dre, Jay-Z, Nas, Kendrick Lamar, Drake and Wale. Sixteen is a laid back, but powerful song that seems fitting for a pensive afternoon spent poolside basking in the sun.
