I love the horns. They sandwich “Talk to Me,” low and high in a perfect combination. This track is dripping in dark emotion. Maybe remorse? The guitar whispers sadness, the moment when you accept a fate you don’t want. There is struggle and drama. Bravo to Drumma Boy.
You could easily say the production we’ve heard so far on TM 103 is beyond Jeezy’s scope of practice. Maybe it’s a little to sonically articulate for his skill set. So far he sounds like he’s trying to rise to the occasion. Jeezy is a mood rapper, a guy who has a specific position in the large scheme of things, a go to guy for trap rap of the most simplistic but head nodding caliber. We still love him for what he does even though he will win no dictionary rapper awards.
I like this song. Jeezy has added some intonation to his delivery foreign to what I remember. It’s a bit more thoughtful and brooding. Maybe it’s age or organic progression forcing this small change. Hell, maybe it’s having someone markedly more talented like Gibbs at his side. No telling.
Don’t get too excited about the Em feature. He’s just offering some dead pan rage to the hook. It all works though. I think this is the best we’ve heard so far of TM 103. Do you agree? Talk to me.
