Comment: The first rule to the 'All Word No Play' game is do not sleep on the beat! Joe Beats laces this track with some of the best production I've heard in a long time. The bass and drums come together very, very smoothly, and although you might have to give it a couple of listens to fully appreciate it, this is definitely up there with 'Bounce' as some of Joe's best work. Lyrically, this song is also extremely well done. Rhode Island/Brooklyn-based Sage Francis takes a different approach toward his rhymes than he usually does, and the creativity level in this song is off the meter. Through a relatively simple, yet very dope word scheme that involves stringing together words and phrases in such a way that they connect with one another, he proves that one thing he is not lacking in is wordplay. You will definitely have to appreciate this song conceptually in order to appreciate it musically, but those with more open minds should love this. It is already one of my favorite tracks of the year, so give it a chance and buy the record.
