"I'm from that Chi-town dirt/I went from being broke to sleeping in Versace shirts," begins Kells over a silken trap groove. While there's a bit more to it than that, the story, the teller and the MC are seriously seductive, and this title track sets the stage for his long-anticipated comeback LP. Does that make a line like "I beat the pussy/Django" easier to swallow coming from a man with an evident history of predatory sexuality? Your call.
