Rick Ross and Bruno Mali Remix Total’s 1995 Classic ‘Can’t You See’ [LISTEN]
“Follow the code,” raps Ross. “Shorty swallow me whole / I met her climbing a pole and let her climb in the Rolls / Ever since Bad Boy, we’re elegant.” After some classic Total vocals providing the hook, Mali rhymes: "Now they start to pay attention when a nigga famin.' if you want it, you can name it / Trips to the Caymans / I'm just a ghetto kid who made it big off entertainment..."
The remix includes the Notorious B.I.G.’s classic verse from the original song. "Can't You See" prominently sampled James Brown's "The Big Payback" and was a major hit for Bad Boy Entertainment back in 1995, reaching No. 13 on the Billboard 200 and helping to push Total's debut album to platinum status.
Ross dropped Rather You Than Me back in March and has stayed busy ever since. He recently premiered the visuals for “Santorini Greece” and “Lamborghini Doors” with Meek Mill. He’s popped up on A$AP Ferg’s “East Coast (Remix)” alongside A$AP Rocky, Busta Rhymes, Dave East and others; he's worked with Lloyd on “Heavenly Body,” Action Bronson's “9-24-7000,” and joined up with Sammie on “Good Life.”
And this remix is timed well. The recent wave of 1990s nostalgia shows no signs of slowing down, with VH1 recently airing Hip-Hop Honors: The 90s Game-Changers and an announced Xscape reunion tour, it's like the Clinton era all over again.
Rozay posted snippets of the track on Instagram.
