Young Thug’s Remix Of Elton John’s “Rocket Man” Has Surfaced
Thug fans have patiently awaited this day.
Today, the song has surfaced on SoundCloud, as pointed out by Noisey. It features a vocal sample from the song’s hook as well as the piano chords, and finds Thug dueting with Elton’s hook, before delivering a half-sung, half-rapped verse that hits on some vocal ideas you never thought you’d hear over an Elton instrumental. It’s an emotional performance that finds the rapper darting between subjects, mashing personal reflection with outlandish boasts: “She let me back in like she never cried/She let me back in like I never lied/I look like a cat with eleven lives.”
Listen to the track below.
Got my karats out of Bonnie & Clyde
She let me back in like she never cried
She let me back in like I never lied
I look like a cat with eleven lives
I really kick shit you can’t act so fly
I’m steady chasing like I’m never tired
I’m living scary like a hundred highs
Lil mama sexy, I got butterflies, hey
