The overblown press conference was strike one. A lackluster Dreamchasers 2 mixtape by Meek Mill was strike two. Strike three came with the second release pairing Rozay with Usher. That “Touch N You” song was a dud and everyone not sucking on Maybach exhaust knew it. Was the mighty Maybach Music beginning to show signs of slippage? It was a nice run, but everybody comes to a halt sooner or later. Not now though. The Bauce got something to say about that and his release “So Sophisticated” not only backs up the haters, but replaces a bit of the sheen lost by homie Meek and sets the movement back on course.On Rich Forever’s “Swear To God,” Mr. Roberts declared “three new flows, that’s off top.” This track may be where he chose to unleash one of them. The slick rhyme scheme displayed on “So Sophisticated” is tough shit. It won’t change the world or anything, but it’s clear that Rick Ross is still enamored of the art involved in Hip-Hop and is not just satisfied coasting. he’s still experimenting with his music and his delivery.
The beat is more of that hard shit that we’ve become accustomed to hearing Ross rhyme over. Again, nothing revolutionary, but hard-charging, yet normal enough for Meek Mill to handle.
It’s been a wobbly few weeks but a track like this is sufficient to pull the movement back center. More of this, less of Maybach O. More of this Meek and less of the flossing chick chaser that slept walked through Dreamchasers 2. Clink those bottles. Maybach Music is back to basics. “So Sophisticated.” Enjoy.
