I actually didn’t mind Russ doing boom-bap shit recently, but this is a return to boring and basic music from Russ.

i actually liked the singles Russ was releasing before this. this completely throws that momentum out the window. what is this? why? this is terrible and i never want to hear it again.
Yet again I feel like the people on this website always miss the point and vibe that was aimed for by certain tracks.

I disagree with Cry, this is not a "bars heavy" type of track. This is the type of track that you blast in the car with your friends, with a catchy hook and a couple lyrics that can be chanted in unison in a stadium or with your homies as you are listening.

Russ and Lil Baby deliver on all of the above, not to mention the amazing cinematic production from BOI-1DA.
