I never thought I’d see the day where a contemporary rapper would base a whole song around snuff language. For those that know the meaning of a “62” – a job well done. To everyone else, the numerical value of a “62” demonstrates shades of grey, all pointing to known informant Tekashi 6ix9ine, whom Uncle Murda publicly lambasted days ago. While it may seem a little farfetched to causally link the numbers “62” and “69,” greater twists of fate have occurred in the Rotten Manzana.
Tory Lanez’ might have considered himself an ally to Tekashi before he and everyone else learned of his snitching ways, but on the surface “62” is not a song about anyone in particular, but rather a New York State mind infiltrating the brain. While Tory Lanez embodies very few characteristics of a native New Yorker, his presence on the song is befitting, solely because it offsets much of Uncle Murda’s incessantly angry tone of voice.
Interestingly enough, Tory’s chorus isn’t his lone contribution, as he also co-produced the record with the help of Play Picasso. “62” is the second collaboration between the largely disparate entities, the first being “Pussy Like Oouuu” which premiered on WorldStar about a year ago.
The b*tches go for 62 ’round this motherfucker
Don’t fuck around and move ’round this motherfucker.
