Bo$quiat Clique – On Me Every Time (Prod. B3auu) [Audio]

Hamilton, ON – The forthcoming #YEBO project release from the Bo$quiat Clique crew is only days away from dropping. So crew members B3auu and EJ Grant teamed up to drop this latest single on us entitled “On Me Every Time.”

HipHopCanada’s own Sarah Sussman and Brandon Bastaldo both received this track. And we were both feeling it. So we decided to team up and each throw in our two-cents about this joint. Check it out after the jump.

Sarah Sussman: Our two dudes come in on that signature spacey vibed-out B3auu production. And they verse about the dimes who stay by them – no matter what. Check it below. And keep it locked for the release of #YEBO on Mar. 27. Don’t get me wrong: it’s not one of those “Girl I’m so glad you’ll never leave me” kind of tracks. And it’s not one of those “I get all the honeys” tracks, either.

It’s a track about the ladies who say that they don’t like how these dudes are, but come back for more because of how these dudes are. It’s a track that’s seemingly critical of the ladies who keep coming around. Like when B3auu is all like, “Why you walking out?/ You gon’ leave your bags here?/ All your stuff here/ Or that underwear?”

That’s like the relationship equivalent of The Boy Who Cried Wolf, am I right? And then EJ raps about not being able to get to third base, but admits that he knows he can still get to second base. And by the end of it all, I’m left feeling like I just took in a very provocative PSA about the importance of self-respect.


Brandon Bastaldo: “On Me Every Time” is a soft departure from the Native Tongue Posse-esque vibe that this crew usually sports. On this delicate beat skillfully produced by Clique member B3auu, this is the kind of track you’d listen to on continuous repeat on a sunny afternoon, or cruising the streets in search of summer love. Putting my cheesy-ness aside, the most impressive thing that this soulful group continues to display is their ability to think outside of the box. Dropping tons of soft-spoken, playful puns about hitting on girls, “On Me Every Time” is a great reminder of just how finely themes of love and hip-hop fit together.

Part of the extremely free flowing feeling brought on by “On Me Everytime” comes from the fact that is smooth track is actually a freestyle. Saying spontaneous, yet never-the-less funny lines like “Coolin’, trying to get to third base/ She ain’t bout it?/ Might as well hit second base,” this track featuring Bo$quiat Clique members B3auu and EJ Grant reminds listeners what it’s like to hear a real freestyle that wasn’t read off of a BlackBerry. So, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to sit back, pop the champagne and patiently await the arrival of a long over due summer to this awesome track.
