Pittsburgh rapper Anthony Willis aka My Favorite Color continues to surprise audiences with his eccentric musical style. His quirky personality and sense of humor remain standout qualities about the artist from the East Coast. Though, he also has a knack for real-life storytelling and can successfully mix it with a hint of comedic relief.
Furthermore, the Rostrum Records artist has managed to climb up the charts with Billboard hits like “Old News” and “Mayday.” A few months back, his energy-packed track “Dead It” even managed to catch the eyes of viewers. Though, he’s not just dropping hit tracks for kicks and giggles.
Hot off the press, comes My Favorite Color’s breakup love song “Cut Me In.” Furthermore, the track finds MFC in an unrequited love story.
MFC Is Unlucky In Love In “Cut Me In”
Fans of My Favorite Color know there are many sides to the Pittsburgh artist. For instance, he can go from offering comedic relief to being completely deadpan. Though, “Cut Me In” finds MFC deep in his feelings for a love interest who treats him unfairly. Unfortunately, MFC is unlucky in love.
He confronts his lover, constantly asking why they continue to put him in the friend zone. Though, MFC tends to interchange between being a friend and nothing at all, hinting at a very complicated relationship. Furthermore, MFC demands to know what makes him different from other guys when he raps “What’s that man got that I don’t?” Of course, MFC can buy his lover all the jewels and gifts she wants, and yet, his offer doesn’t interest her. Talk about unrequited love.
When it comes to the sound of the song, the instrumentals on the track do have a sort of retro feel to them. On “Cut Me In,” there’s a chorus where we hear nothing but MFC’s voice, all organically produced, adding another interesting feature to the song. “Cut Me In” initially comes off as a regular love song, but the innovative sound of the track remains a huge standout.
It’s All Part Of His Plan

“What’s that man got that I don’t got”, he interchanges between “why you gotta treat me like a friend” and not being a friend at all? Very sonic sounding, especially with all the chorus where he’s just audibly humming.
