BJ The Chicago Kid has just released a flipped-around version of his hometown lord Kanye West‘s track, “Can’t Hold My Liquor.” BJ’s version is stripped down and really becomes the artists own; however, the main components that make this a signature track of Yeezus still remain. While West’s version is menacing and raw, BJ’s is bleak and mechanic.
In the official music video, produced by Jerome D, BJ woozy from the liquor wanders around the dark, blue-lit streets in a blurry haze carrying a bottle of Hennessy. Halfway through the song, wailing guitar cuts through the drunken reverie and brings back a feeling of urgency and fear to the track.
This is not the first contact BJ has made with West: recall when the two Chicagoans worked together on 2009’s “Impossible,” also featuring Twista and Keyshia Cole. BJ is a regular favorite at Top Dawg Entertainment, having collaborated with the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, Ab-Soul, and Jay Rock.
It’s hard to say which version of “Can’t Hold My Liquor” is better. Which version is your favorite?
