These talented young lyricists possess a natural knack for creating emotionally driven trap songs. The best effort all-around is “Ocean Eyes,” a remixed Billie Eilish sample that maintains the melancholy of the original material. All three emcees take turns storytelling, singing and harmonizing with vivid details of selling drugs to survive, and the loss of friends and family—even as current as losing a grandmother to Covid. The production is impressive and would make Billie proud. Other tracks, “2Blessed 2B Stressed” and “Chinaberry Boo” share a similar vulnerability with downtempo melodies and outstanding production.
