Burna Boy recruits Polo G for new single ‘Want It All’
Burna Boy, who keeps a keen interest in American hip-hop, collaborated with Polo G for the very first time. On his latest banger, the Nigerian artist sheds light on the days of his struggles and how he now gets exclusive bags from Virgil Abloh. While remembering his old days, the rapper in the chorus croons, “I remember when they said they don't believe in me no more/I was sleeping on the ground, on the cold floor/Whole time I was grinding, I've been tryin' to achieve/ Working night and day, you know my people no dey sleep.”
Burna then switches his flow in the first verse rapping, “So tell me your opinion na your nyash o/ Convexed because I say I did it to my own oh/ If I enter fire now shey una go follow/ I'm tellin' you, back in '09 I really sold dope.” Polo G then enters the song on the second verse spitting, “In my stomach, butterflies/ Ain't been sane since my brothers died/ We woke up like f**k, it's now, never put a ho above the guys/I have dug deep into your heart and I discovered lies/ They gon' tell my story, I'm that ni**a, what they summarize/ No lie, no cap, God knows.” You can listen to the track on different streaming platforms here.
