“Facts Only” is the lead single from In Transit. It features artist Dizzy Wright and is essentially an anthem pertaining to ‘frenemies.’ The production here is down to earth. The orderly foundation, soulful expressive instrumentation, flavorful tempo, and orthodox vibe make for a seriously likable combination. The hook is copacetic. The execution is flattering and the lyrics are black & white. The verses are gratifying. The fellas utilize polished flows, fresh wordplay, and choice rhymes. They share their individual ordeals with those who smile in your face but wish you ill behind your back in a very familiar fashion. A sprinkling of compelling lines from Lou CharLe$ include: “With friends like you, who needs enemies? You scared of who I am. I’m focused who I’m a be. New heights I’m finna reach. The legacy I’m a leave. Should of known my ambition wouldn’t be pleasantly received. All that blase-blah, Lou be brand new. Went to school, graduated, yeah yeah, they love to hate it. Somewhere behind a desk, praying I never make it. Hoping God, Yahweh, and Allah stagnate my profits.” Those words right there summarize the theme & nature of the record quite effectively. As a whole, this is a top notch selection.
**My Two Cents: I dig everything about this track from beginning to end. The beat just has an undeniable finesse to it. J. Rhodes shines bright as the producer on this one. The hook is done just right. The sample goes hand in hand with the added delivery and both work together to drive home the message of the tune. And the content rounds out everything superbly. The listener can’t help but to zone out with Lou & Dizzy as they discuss their dealings with ‘frenemies.’ Awesome song that readers should check out for sure.
