I once took the Metro North line out of Left Leberra's hometown of New Haven, CT and noticed that, while there was no shortage of the usual riff raff (no SODMG) that you'd see on any public transit service, more than few of the riders seemed entirely too bougie for the train system's spoiled decor. "Metro North," taken from Left's new set Mary Saves, offers a similar sense of refinement in a decaying body. It's like him and producers Northern Lights took the shining-sad aesthetic of current rap radio and just melted it into a silvery liquid. And then they poured it on Drake and he was all like "ew, gross."
