“The Late Bloomer”
This selection serves as both the title and opening track for the EP. The beginning of this record is divine. There is a powerful soulful wake up call of sorts belted out by an amazing female vocalist. From there, the production kicks in. The production here is fresh. The clean base, complimentary supporting details, easy going tempo, and mellow vibe work excellently together. The hook is legit. The delivery is trendy and the lyrics are straightforward. There is only one full verse present but it is of a top notch quality. Tee Lyve steps up to the plate with a sharp flow, polished wordplay, and efficient rhymes. Late or otherwise, he makes it very clear that he is to be taken seriously in this music game. A handful of standout lines include: “Keep it real in my circumference. Cause these women love to gossip ’bout they man and all they problems. Come at me with that, I’ll stop it. Love, I’m focused on my profits. See these haters on some non-sense. Grilling hard, I guess they plotting.” One has to appreciate the finesse within those words right there. Overall, this is a very impressive way to kick off the project.
