Well, damn. This is a good look. Ask anyone familiar with Don Trip’s catalog, “Letter To My Son” normally ranks near the top. The sheer honesty of a man wanting nothing more than to be in his son’s life and the mother doing everything in her power to ensure he isn’t is nothing short of vivid. If anything, it’s more exposing than it is lyrical; an approach that works to damn near perfection in this case. Now that Trip is starting to pop up on a few more radars, however, it only makes sense he gave his career defining track (to this moment) a facelift. The always effective Cee-Lo soulfully handles the hook duties while Don drives home the point to his infant son that being a single parent in a power struggle is quite possibly the hardest job he has ever faced.
