There's something comfortingly familiar about this track, and it's not just because it's been a minute since we've seen our old friend Fliperace. The sound is timeless: loping Texas hard bop, synths for dudes who drive slow, plus a perfect theme for hot shots who love to stunt. Lil Flip's casual, nonchalant delivery—Dear haters, I apologize for being rich/ I'm standing on the bar with more chains than Slick Rick—proves that if you want to devastate your enemies, it's most effective to remain calm. It's total Godfather shit: bosses don't get angry, they just get what they want.
