I hate the fact that this is considered “throwback” and not just a good track…because they never call any other sound throwback unless its some boom bap/East Coast shit…like they dont call “maad city” (the joint with MC Eiht) a throwback song or Krit isnt considered throwback…
the problem with the throwback/revivalist label is its seen as some mission to bring something back when its just a good song with a certain sound to it…it gets treated like its alien. so…whenever its some NY shit that doesnt have a turnup bounce to it, its “throwback” and when it IS some turn up shit, then “NY niggas biting the south again”
cant win for losing
I dont want to debate it though, im dead inside. keep scrolling.
