Big Boi and Sleepy Brown bring the Dungeon Family energy with new collaboration "Can't Sleep."


Big Boi may be a veteran in this rap game, but his appetite for the female form has yet to dull in the slightest. In fact, in his brand new collaboration with Sleepy Brown "Can't Sleep" seems to be all about celebrating hypersexualized women -- at least until you sit down and give a closer listen to the lyrics. Perhaps the melancholic sample that kicks things off should have been a clue, but in truth, the video seems hellbent on telling a different story. As such, there's an interesting sort of juxtaposition going on, though the tone is a little unclear at times. 

Surrounded by the scantily clad though he may be, Big Boi still comes through with some heightened social commentary on sexuality in media. "Raised by the internet with no daddy, sadly poppin' pussy for the Instabook," he raps. "Backward for the Facegram, just to make a n***a look." And while he does seem to appreciate the sights, he also seems to lament the side effects that Demon Time might bring. "Bad thing about it, she just fuckin' up her chances of a n***a put some carats on her hand and try to marry her," raps Big Boi, over a melancholic piano. Throw in some smooth vocals from Sleepy Brown, who floats over the smooth instrumental as he always does, and it's looking like the Dungeon Family is back in the building.
