Solange and Lil Wayne get “Mad” on their new collaboration off A Seat at the Table.
Despite the title, “Mad” is also mellow. Weezy lets off some frustration on his bars. “I used to rock hand-me-downs,” he raps. “And now I rock standing crowds / But it’s hard when you only got fans around / And no fam around / And if they are, then their hands are out.”
Meanwhile, Solange uses the track to vent, as well. “I ran into this girl,” she sings. “I said, ‘I’m tired of explaining’ / Man, this shit is draining / But I’m not really allowed to be mad.”
