Wayne's first post-prison single (which he cut for Tha Carter IV) suggests his teeming brain was eating itself during all that time alone: Rarely has the man sounded so virtuosically loopy. Over thick synth burble and a "Banana Boat Song" sample, he makes up for lost nooky ("Never met the bitch but I fuck her like I missed her") and sprays intense metaphysical graffiti all over: "Life is the bitch and death is the sister/Sleep is the cousin/What a fuckin' family picture."
