Over a beat that samples Gong’s “Mandrake”–and with a delivery that feels like a spiritual successor to Jadakiss’ “Why”–TrenchBaby Rich’s “They Ain’t Tell Us” is a powerful track. Discussing topics that include (but aren’t limited to) generational wealth, generational trauma and being a light in the dark for those around him, this one is incredibly well-versed in the knowledge department. Speaking on the secrets of the government and how the higher-ups have tried to keep people silent is definitely appreciated.
I especially loved the flow on “They Ain’t Tell Us” because of its throwback factor and sound. The production feels classic, but also has enough newer feelings to it so it becomes its own thing–even if the beat feels like “Why.” I also enjoyed the lyricism Rich gave listeners throughout the song; the brother rapped quite proficiently.
