    sideline opinion: actual track would have been better with 3 or 4 features instead of 20+, but its trying to be something else.

    Zac Brown was terrible, and I'm a ZBB fan

    Favorites were JB, Grande, Sia, and Lil Yachty.

    Meh.

    Not a great song, but it is what it is. It’s for a great cause and will raise a ton of money so good on LD.

    As usual, great visuals.

    So basically instead of getting 50 famous people to say “Hi I’m (blank) don’t litter” they just got them to say “I’m (insert animal) and I do (blank)”. Creative way to make a PSA, but that’s about all it is IMO. Doubt I’ll ever re-listen to that one.

    Yeah that was bad, it’s barely cohesive. I kept waiting for something to tie it together but it never happened.

    I’ll just pretend that didn’t happen.

    After a sober and awake listen, yeah. The song is bad, but it is going to catch on some. The production an idea are great, but ugh. If it were a movie with flesh on the bones it could be great but that... nah.

    I cringed my way through the first bit that I guess was the chorus? Idk, but when it got to the part where he said he was a baboon I cut it off and decided I was no longer a fan of lil dickys music.

    It's getting a bunch of hype and a segment on the Today show, it has done it's work. The media blitz on this is what matters, not the song itself. And kids will probably love the shitty song.

    The problem is that LD hyped it up like it was a real song. He could have easily prefaced that it was a creative PSA campaign and ppl wouldn’t be disappointed right now.

    This is my exact thought. If this had run on NBC or something (language aside) It would be really cool. Maybe there are plans for that or something adjacent.

    Yeah I think this has to be looked at more as a commercial/PSA type thing.

    As a song, I can’t even say there’s a part of it that was catchy enough to make up for the quality of the song. At least the dumb trap/new rap has a catchy flow or beat, etc.

    It’s not a LD rap track.

    The MV is already longer than the single, but I wonder if we'll get a remix or something at some point. LD has the marketing chops to keep this thing in the spotlight. Already has a couple million YT plays.
