Now I can talk MY shit

Unpopular opinion: Valee's much-heralded verse on Two 16's was impressive from a theatrical standpoint on the breath control tip, but not particularly enjoyable from a musical standpoint because it was a blatant act of attention-hogging on someone else's song and a waste of all the little melodic tricks Valee has up the sleeves of his Adidas tracksuits. Juice & Gin here is the song Two 16's would have been if Valee had complimented ZMoney's verse rather than just dropping a breezeblock of words on there with no regards for the rest of the track.

Really doe, ya host just hopes Seen Her Before doesn't end up being an outlier in Valee's catalogue because Makonnentosh Plus is a song-style which needs to blossom into a full-blown sound. Once more for doz that slept:

Or Desiigner cameos or orchestral-trap modern Mike Dean production

V cool Shells on it, ppl ditch songs more than a week old for their big releases now its annoying. Even the song w Pusha T he goes last so its p easy to cut off.

Ive been within earshot of degenerates like Travis Scott etc I need to give all that shite a proper listen if only cos I feel like rap that big soundings harder n harder to come by. Mike deserves that much imo.

In those suits Valee's now the most fancy looking lad.

saw a tweet that said Valee raps like an old timey tiptoeing burglar and that is so spot on lol.
