Mixing lyricism with luscious sounds from the Garden State, the duo play to each others’ strengths. This allows them to deliver a project that channels what a project with Curren$y and Pusha-T would sound like. For every hard-hitting line, there is a smoother line to build upon and, sometimes, counter that–and vice versa. Twon and D$D play off each other quite well and build each other up, while still both trying to showcase what makes them unique. The “car ride-length” project is just another in a string of great projects from Twon, D$D, and their label.
For twenty minutes, with a few skits placed in between, the two artists give us bars, beautiful beats, and vibes that scream “this feels like summer” without straight-up saying “hey, issa summertime album!!!” Because it’s not as on-the-nose is what makes this one a project that can be listened to at any time and taken in.
