I think I’ll try something a little different this time.
So, here was have a new song. It’s produced by the Alchemist and features a few very popular newer rappers and a few that are kinda whatever (in the eyes of most people). first and foremost, we got Earl. Back from his samoan vacation. Pretty much anything he’s on nowadays is going to be idolized or put under a microscope because of what an impact he made 2 years ago with his solo EP and the lofty expectations we’ve all set for him..
Then we got Action Bronson, who’s been keeping pretty busy. I’m a fan of Bronson and I appreciate the dudes drive to get on all sorts of tracks. He does songs with thugged out dudes, old school veterans, weirdo’s like Riff Raff and pretty much anyone else he happens to be down with. I applaud that mind set and , while it doesn’t always work, it does make for interesting music.

Then we got the slowly improving Domo Genesis and Vince Staples, who I’m pretty clueless about.
So, put them altogether on this bare, light in the drums (which is the style right now, kids) Alchemist track and what do you get?
Personally, I think it’s decent. I don’t think the wheel is being reinvented and I don’t think everyone on this track bought their A material but it’s certainly not bad. Definitely a song that , when it pops up n my Ipod, I will listen to.
So, I’ve been reading some peoples reactions to this song online (which have ranged from people masturbating in public to people claiming that Earl is done and cursing the song like it killed their first born son) and I’m curious, what do you think?
You know what that means. POLL!!!!!

  1. Definitely some rhymin skills but hollow content in the lyrics considering there are so many issues in the world that deserve the attention of critically thinking people.

  2. No one even brought their B game, I would say at best the verses are all C’s to C-‘s when considering they’re all people with careers. Seriously doubt any of those artists would want to claim their verse as their A or B game. I don’t know much about any of them except Earl and Action Bronson, and I guess I’ve heard a little Domo before but talk about underwhelmed.
    The beat is nice, but the overall song could have been a lot better.
