But even with my bias, this is solid track. It has all the classic elements of a good Little Brother song: lyrics that combine indignant, maverick, I’ll-do-whatever-it-takes-to-get-mine optimism with blatant negativity in a 80% to 20% ratio. A soulful beat. And it even has 9th Wonder’s punchy snares like back in the good old days when he was in LB (he produces this particular track). Plus I’m a sucker for disjointed sample-based beats (like this and especially this).

The track will be on their album Separate But Equal, which drops on November 4th.
