G-Eazy is an American hip hop artist from Oakland, California and has released this new hip hop single after releasing his album The Beautiful & Damned (2017). For this single G-Eazy has recruited the help of Yo Gotti and YBN Nahmir.
The song has a fairly basic but still solid production value. There are some good vocals throughout and as a track, sticks to the gangster rap formula well.
G-Eazy has a unique rhyme style but it can be bland and repetitive at times and here I find it is no different. I feel that G-Eazy at times comes across as an arrogant artist but has shown in the past that he can be versatile and speak about subjects that he finds personally important. It is a slight disappointment to see nothing of the sort here.
Yo Gotti provides his own verse and also the intro and chorus to this track. His performance on this track fits well with the bassy and repetitive beat and production of this track. His gangster rap vocals are a stark contrast to G-Eazy on this track even though they are trying to achieve very similar outcomes in their respective verses.
YBN Nahmir’s verse is where I feel this track really falls apart. He is a relative newcomer to the hip hop scene, but at only 18 has taken it by storm. Here, however much he insists he differs from them, he is more akin to mumble rappers than usual. He adds very little here and creates a very jarring last third to the track.
As much as this song fits well within the gangster rap area of music, I think it gets drowned out by much higher quality songs that outshine it in pretty much every way. Without Yo Gotti on this track I think it would have been a very unappealing track to listen to.
