  1. Above average. The only thing I noticed is that he's got that "on the verge of freaking out" type delivery going on (reminds me of E-money from TeamBackpack). Slightly escalated, kind of distracting the listener from the good lyrics and rhymes.

    When listening, I was constantly waiting for him to escalate even more into a spazzed out quickfire rap – not because I wanted him to, but because thats what it sounded like was going to happen.

    The lyrics provided good visuals, the rhyming was above average and I liked the flow for the most part.

    I enjoyed the track. Good stuff.
