Following this strong opener is “Coming Up Fast And Short,” which continues to display Def City Mob’s impressive skills in delivering hard-hitting rhymes and engaging melodies.
The B-side of the cassette starts with “No Trust, No Luv, No Pain,” a track that delves into the struggles and realities of life, showcasing the group’s ability to address deep and meaningful topics.
