H/T: G, The Wiz

June 2015

We’re sending a hat tip (h/t) to Canadian rapper G, The Wiz for mentioning NPR in his new single, “Girls.” 

G The Wiz

It was you who played me wrong

For a moment in my life you made me strong

You liked Spike Jonze like I like Kaufman

The fact that you knew em just made you awesome

We listened to hit songs on NPR

Made Spotify mixtapes and sang along

But weeks turn to months and you never returned my call

Until I saw you with him I should’ve known all along
