Well well, here’s a twist. After months of leaking subpar tracks, Game has found a way to rise to the occasion. All he had to do was enlist a group of A-list features and an equally esteemed producer and the job was virtually done for him. No matter the dismal quality of his recent mixtapes, Game has consistently shown that he is capable of putting out quality, trunk-pounding music and this song is definitely a step in the right direction.
While this is a just a rough version of the track sans Nasir’s vocals, the song shows a very strong, budding chemistry between Game and Jay Electronica. Game’s verse is much stronger than the recent leaks we’ve been subjected to and Jay Elec, as usual, never fails to give each line his all, delivering a stellar verse that is definitely the highlight of this preliminary version.
