So Far Gone dropped yesterday, and it featured “Uptown” on it, but it was a new version. Here’s the original, with Wayne on chorus duty. Can’t decide which I like better. I reposted the mixtape version too for comparison. Credit to OnSmash. Either way it’s a great song.
Sidenote: Anyone else here that Billy Joel “Uptown Girl” sample? Kinda hard to hear at first.
My bad this has been up a couple of minutes with 2 of the same versions. Fixed now. Hopefully I caught it before too many people were like “what the fuck is the difference between these two?”
Drake – Uptown ft. Bun B, Lil Wayne (Original)
I commented that I wish there was a version with Lil Wayne taking care of the chorus but also spitting his verse. Big thanks to NellyD for pointing out that my ideal version of “Uptown” actually exists. It’s called the Original Extended. Check it out.
