Tall Black Guy

#Repost - @phontigallo.....“Sweet You” was the very last song I recorded for the album. And by very last song, I mean me and @tallblackguyproductions were still sending files back and forth while @burnoff was already finalizing the other 9 songs at @thekitchenmastering in Chapel Hill.
I sat on this beat for almost 4 years before I wrote one word. Songs like this are always tricky to write in a rap context. Pander too much and you end up with something corny, or go too hard and you wind up in Ghostface “Wildflower” territory...lol. My goal is to always find the middle. I’ve always maintained that I don’t really write “love songs” so much as I tend to write songs about love. The latter tends to be a lot more nuanced and complicated.

Easter eggs galore in this one (B.I.G., Prodigy, Al B., T-LaRock, De La), although my favorite part of the song is when my brother @dornik_official’s backgrounds come in. I get that this song may be a surprise coming from a man who once rhymed “I want a girl when I want a girl/and when I don’t want a girl I want a girl who understands that.” I’d like to think the 25 year old me would hear the 39 year old me and say, “Man, you finally learned something.” Or he might just be like, “Nigga you washed.” No News Is Good News, out now everywhere. #NNIGN #FEMusic #tallblackguyproductions #tallblackguyprod #phonte #sweeterthanyou #soul #grownmangrowth #washedlife

I KNEW this was your production when I first heard it. I was like this song got a groove on it...the chords 🙌🏾I can't explain it but it's a goose bump effect. Like coasting on the mountain overlooking the ocean in your ride effect.
