The Album starts of with a slow pace with track "IIf" over a melancholic piano notes and angelic choir to ending withy an upbeat, high-tempo song named "25 million". When experimenting with the melody and telling stories, Roddy Richh is at his best.
Earlier this year, in a complex interview Roddy Ricch said "with my next project, I'm going to be more vulnerable" which he managed to do in songs like "Man Made" where he speaks on taking advice from his grandmother to even opening up about his depression in "Crash The Party". The Compton rapper speaks on themes of success and failure throughout the album giving listeners a closer connection to the artist. In the song, "IIf" he talks about the importance of spending our days wisely, "Time is the most expensive luxury in the world, It's something you spend and never get back".We see the artist's growth in the last 2 years, speaking on more sensitive topics.
