Taking a long hard look at how we learn to live life by living it, this five-track EP (10 if you count the instrumental versions of each track) once again merges the Michigan-based rapper's hard hitting but equally encouraging rap lyrics with Soulseize's chilled boom-bap beats and samples. "All Good" delivers a musical flow over a piano loop that builds with Hammond and synth samples while "Next To Me" raps over some cool guitar stabs. The single "Shot With You" brings a soulful soul searching look at drinking culture, while "Let Me Down" has a chilled out look at a how God never lets us down and the EP closes with the up tempo "Victorious". The instrumental tracks make for a great chill out playlist. Hard hitting lyrically but very chilled musically and very easy to listen to.
