Over a soulful, D’Nario speaks on the dynamic between him and his father, while also giving us all tidbits about his life. All through the song, we hear D’Nairo constantly mention his father’s ’86 Cutlass–one of the few things that stayed the same throughout his life. The track reminds me a bit of something you would’ve heard Nip or KRIT spit, because of the storytelling and honesty we get on the just-under-three-minute song. It also reminds me of a Nas cut, again because of the storytelling and honesty.
D’Nairo doesn’t try to sugarcoat his upbringing or the relationship he had with his father and the other adults in his life. Instead, he uses that to show why he’s hungry, both for change and for those around him to do well. He’s determined to break the cycle, even if he’s been well within it at some points during his life.
If you need some damned good storytelling bars, I recommend checking this one out and doing that thing we all do here. Listen closely while you support dope music in all its forms.
