Will Power is good people. I’m talking really good people, which means any musical submission from him gets treated with added precedence. So when he hit me up on Twitter in regards to this Nikkiya, Tech N9ne and Rittz record, there wasn’t a doubt in my mind the “When I Was High (Remix)” would get played. Sweet baby Jesus though, all those exclamation points and caps lock weren’t an exaggeration. For one, the first moments of the instrumental sets the tone something worth witnessing is about take place. Next, Nikkiya gives the track its first vocals with the infectious and easily repeatable hook that will have you subconsciously singing along by the end of track. Next, Tech N9ne drops a rapid fire verse that’ll have you struggling to keep pace, but respect it as another notch under his belt for what has been a mighty successful 2011. Then, Rittz continues where Tech left off with a verse spit so fast Usain Bolt would need a head start if the lyrics actually had legs.
By the end of the record, however, you should be exhausted; in a good way, of course.
