Blown away by the performance — seriously, how could you not be? — it was a song from Martin’s Velvet Portraits that made the most impact.
Inspired by the idea of embracing love over hate, the Vegas emcee hit the booth to add a pair of verses to “With You”—a standout from VP that has Martin in all out G-Funk vocoder mode, yearning for forever with that special someone (or something—music), while Marlon Williams jams out on the guitar.
The result? An unofficial remix that speaks volumes during the current state of the country—from the Orlando tragedy to Tru… yeah.
No matter the innocence/
No matter our differences/
No matter who you love we can reap from it’s benefits/
No religion can stop me from understanding your vision is/
less important than what we can do together is limitless/
The Kings of our generation, Queens should be celebrated/
Instead of puttin’ people underneath, we should elevate em’/
If you ain’t throwin’ shade to keep me from being hot/
When the world is full of hate then love is all we got/
