slow ones where the delivery or words have to be good or you'll end up like that guy on Monster.

I remembered the Drop the World chorus today, so I went back and that sparked this post. Both the song and the beat fall off pretty hard, but Wayne's first verse is exactly what I mean. In this case, slowing it down gives it a pensive feel. Breaking out italics for this one.

I got ice in my veins, blood in my eyes
Hate in my heart, love in my mind
I seen nights full of pain, days of the same
You keep the sunshine, save me the rain

Could be cheesy, but Wayne sends it. As he does.

Other songs come to mind like Drive Slow, but the beat carries the slow feel. Kanye's verses aren't that slow and doesn't really fit for me. Anyways, here's another.

Chamillionaire & Paul Wall get slow on The Other Day. Here, slowing down makes big poo poo seem casual. Because for Chamillionaire and Paul Wall, big poo poo is casual.

Slow down rookie take your time god ain't late
Do your chores don't go to war with a rake
I'm trying to soar to be great

Slow sounds sinister. I'm no expert, but I feel like slow is Snoop's whole thing, and he gets mean at the end of Drop It Like It's Hot.

Cement shoes, now I'm on the move
Your family's crying, now you on the news
They can't find you, and now they miss you
Must I remind you, I'm only here to twist you
Pistol whip you, dip you, then flip you
Then dance to the motherfucking music we Crip to

But Pharrell takes the first verse, and imo does it better. A youtuber was surprised to learn the guy behind Happy did this one, and I agree it's fun to think about.

I'm a nice dude, with some nice dreams
See these ice cubes? See these Ice Creams?
Eligible bachelor, million dollar boat
That's whiter than what's spilling down your throat

Post some slow ones.
