On Twitter, DJ Dahi called his re-work of "Ridin' Round" "forsure one of my favorite records I've done this year"—no small praise from a man who worked with Dr. Dre, Travi$ Scott, Mac Miller, and other prominent names in 2015. He pushes "Ridin Round" more explicitly towards reggae, with rubbery bass high in the mix. Uchis has proved very comfortable with this genre in the past—see "Payday," from her Drunken Babble project, and more recently, Por Vida's "Know What I Want." The singer is cheerfully war-ready here: Baby understand I don't need a man/ fuck me over I'll fuck you worse, than take off to Japan.
