For better or worse, lean (sizzurp's name du jour) is the biggest intoxicant in the rap game right now. Now-god-level-MC Future blasted it to another level with Dirty Sprite 2; Travi$ Scott kept the momentum chugging along with his September debut, Rodeo.

So it's only right that Lil Wayne, one of the beverage's earliest world-famous proponents, is back today with "Pour Up." You already know what it's about; you won't be surprised, either, to find that the track's got that Houston-ready intoxicated slowness. 

Listen to the new Lil Wayne over at Hot New Hip Hop.

"Pour Up" comes from an upcoming compilation by DJ Raj Smoove, The Greatest DJ in the World Vol. 1. Fans who've spent time with Wayne's Sorry 4 the Wait 2 and Free Weezy Album this year will know this is sort of an unexpected return to boosting for lean. HNHH notes, "Most of Wayne's recent music has shied away from rampant drug references, specifically codeine," before speculating that "Pour Up" could be an unreleased oldie from the vault.

While a bunch of Wayne's many recent features have been light on the Tunechi magic, this one's straight-through rapping. Savor it. Be careful about abusing prescription medications please.
