Quincy Jamal Says Success is the Best Revenge on “Payback”

The song’s premise is simple: success really is the best revenge–and it’s usually served cold to the naysayers. However, it’s the way Quincy Jamal presents his thoughts on the topic that made me want to listen. Sonically, the flows and bars feel a bit like Cole or Kendrick. Beat-wise, the song reminds me of a middle-era Cole track, down to the piano-heavy melody. It’s definitely one of those songs you need to run back a few times. So do that and support dope music in all its forms.
