This track is a perfect metaphor of the months to come; between the laid back jazzy riffs, the chill flow of each artist on this track and the throwback to classic Wu, this song embodies what summer is about. Expect to have it playing on your speakers during your summer roadtrips, in your ears as you soak up rays on whatever beach you can get to, and to be played between sets at summer festivals as you sip the borderline-flat keg beer you just spent $6 on. This song can only be described by the words “vintage Wu” and I mean this in the sense that it is before Wu got the more angry/intense tone they’re known and loved for today. The transition between Raekwon, Ghostface Killah and Rick Ross is infallible, this song process that Wu-Tang still lives and that talent within the industry today is up to Wu’s standard; Rick Ross fits the sound of this song flawlessly. It is disappointing that RZA was not actually on the boards for this track; an almost complete Wu reunion is the only thing that could have improved this track.
