Big Boi did a bang up job shining the light on Andre’s shadow. His album Sir Lucious Left Foot-The Son Of Chico Dusty proved that he was highly capable of putting out fire on his own. The album was the perfect balance of solo brilliance and well-timed guest appearances that broke up any monotony. Prime among these collaborations was his duet with T.I. and Khujo Goodie, “Tangerine.” The track was perhaps Mr. Harris’ best post-prison performance with Drake’s “Fancy” about the only other work of merit. The cherry on top wasn’t enough, so Big Boi went and got Rauce and Bun B for some basso profundo flavor.
The moody, guitar and bongo drum construction remains unaltered and that’s a good thing. The rhythm was perfect for the Tropicana tales of women after that cheddar. Big Boi uses his second verse from the original which comes out the gate hard. The placement of the verse changes the energy of the song.
Rick Ross takes a more muscular approach, choosing to talk more about what hes got going on that attracts the women than talking about the women himself. Yeah that’s a nice watch yeah cats are jealous and you’re doing big things. There aren’t many conceptual surprises from Rozay but his style was a perfect counterbalance to Mr. Patton’s slick talking. For obvious reasons and a lack of potential jumpers, T.I. was unavailable to update his verse but it was one of his better verses in his current incarnation so it’s probably better than he didn’t redo it. He did his thing on the first take.
Bun B’s deep voice and deliberate yet smooth flow can make anything sound dope. Obama should hire him to release all the bad economy numbers and the Republicans would just bob their heads and go truuue. Bun sticks closer to the script than Ross, noting all the ways of the femme fatale and why she is so hot. Mentions Love Potion #9 shows Bun B’s age and his versatility and electric guitars that come in on his verse push his verse even higher.
The identity of the song isn’t altered by the additions and with ahlf the song remainging from the original composition more thna enough of the roiginal spirit remains. Rick Ross and Bun B add a mature, husky flavor that positively adds an additional layer to the track. “Tangerine” Remix. Enjoy.
