And so another leak from the much hyped, immeasurably delayed collaboration hits the e-waves. Finally, it looks like Hell: The Sequel has a definite release and the accompanying momentum.
And the crowd goes wild. Right?
As much as I thought I’d be first in line waiting to hear Em and Royce’s new music, none of the recent tracks have really moved me. While I’ll openly praise Nickel’s lyricism, he is one-dimensional, his hook game is way over par and he can’t craft an entire song by himself. And as great as Marshall is (or was), most of his post-hiatus music has been pretty average as well. “I’m On Everything” is no different. It starts off pretty lackluster before managing to end on a strong note, but overall isn’t anything worth dropping jaws at.
The bottom line is all these songs with “legendary” collaborations seem otherworldly only on paper. In this day and age of music saturation, they’re just one-hitter-quitters, meaning you’ll hear it one time before shifting them into <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2011/05/study-81-of-itunes-collections-never-get-played">the 81% bin</a>.
