I love this beat and also prefer Eli's performance personally, though Ryan's last verse was quite good.
Look, so I think that all of the instrumentals are dope, and the fact that it has three is even dope, but I really think Ryan ruins the track. No disrespect, but in the first rap part he’s really struggling to keep up. That’s not a good thing and isn’t personally a charm for me.

I also think, as other’s have pointed out, that he’s biting darkie hard here. But like, the hardest I’ve heard him bite darkie. He even adopts the same tone in which darkie screams ... read more
Lil Darkie ft. slowthai.
I think my main issue with this one is that neither Eli or Ryan bring a solid performance. Neither one does a poor job, but neither really blow me away in any sort of way. The mixing is kinda wonky, and definitely brings the quality of this down too. Still a pretty cool structured song and a cool collab!
This is Ryan at his worst. His inexperience in rapping really shows on this track. In the first verse he tries to rap fast but mumbles every word possible. On the second one, he just sounds extremely amateurish, and the third one is by far the best one... and it's not a good thing, because it's all thanks to voice effects and not Ryans actual rapping. The beat is really good tho.
