We’ve been feeling MJG’s gradual transformation into a dude with the most hyperactive, gravelly flow in rap, sounding like Young Jeezy on a pogo stick normally, but less bouncy and more clipped here—relying on a slowed vocal sample to remind us that he wears his sunglasses in the house and in the car and on the street. Looking back on it, we don’t think he’s even exaggerating about that. When is he not wearing sunglasses? We’ll be waiting on the solo album, but no matter what it will never ever be able to touch the cover of Comin Out Hard.
