Just FYI there is a full blast guitar solo at the end of "G Shyt." Despite that, it's a great song because it's exactly what makes Wiz so likable: bragging about reasonable dude shit over lush production. Bringing a girl back to his house, chilling on a rooftop (Wiz loves rooftops more than any other human being except maybe Tito Jackson), and—of course, OF COURSE!—smoking ridiculous amounts of weed. Wiz' budget keeps getting bigger and he keeps relaxing harder. Maybe by next year he'll have a perm and be writing songs about taking naps.
