The production here is aces. The hushful base, silken background details, gradual tempo, and dark vibe make for a flawless combination. The hook is golden too. It incorporates a sample of the “Comfort Inn Ending” freestyle by the beloved Jhene Aiko. The clip is a fine accent to the track and fits in as if it is apart of the original recording. The verses are official. Member David Kelly laces the beat with a low compelling flow, crafty wordplay, and rhymes that yield a warning. He gives vivid particulars that prove it may not be such a good idea to put one’s trust into the female gender. A couple of lines worth rewinding are: “These b—hes love me and they hate then they love me again. Its outrageous and amazing could be f–king her friends. She call me baby. Wanna date me but she still got a man. Ain’t that shady for a lady. I just don’t understand. That n—a damn near tried to kill me when he caught me in the crib. Didn’t know the situation, swear I thought it was the end. Play around with fire you’ll eventually burn. Either a blessing or a lesson guarantee you gone learn, b—h!” That is quite the dramatic anecdote to conclude the single with. As a whole, this is a must hear leading effort.
**My Two Cents: I am here all day for this single. The fellas knock this one out of the park. David Kelly utilizes a bit of a differing style from his usual energetic nature which is not a bad thing at all. It is actually quite refreshing. Sick Siah gives him a great structure to experiment with too. The production is superb. And the sample from Miss Aiko is the icing on the cake. This is sure to get everyone hype about 13, no question. On the off chance that it doesn’t, there is a video on the way too. It is done by Michael Alston. And I have it on good authority that it’s a dope yet twisted piece of work. In the meantime, check out Jhene Aiko’s video to her freestyle above. -MinM
