Excluding the MMG compilation album, it’s been a while since Wale dropped off some solo material, and it makes for a welcome change to the style of production he works on when in MMG company.

The production is one that seems to get better as the track evolves, despite not really changing much. Initially, the soulful and lively style doesn’t seem massively unique, but the progression of the track highlights the impact and quality of the vocal sample’s synergy with the rest of the beat. Wale’s raps aren’t bad, delivering a couple of witty lines as you’d expect, but they’re not as perfectly suited as they could be; something more biographical or a storytelling approach would have maximised this beat far more than the bragger raps he mostly goes with. Nonetheless, it’s a decent effort that’s held together by a very likeable beat.
