Counterbalance is spreading his seed all over the place, no quip planned. In any case, his most recent coordinated effort with 21 Savage is no “mail-arrange” cooperation, considering the history they share as co-schemers, which bore the tune “Ric Flair Drip” if nothing else. So for what reason does it work so well, when 21 and Offset meet up on wax? The appropriate response is no more straightforward than a recreated model of the Universe.
On “1.5” Offset and 21 Savage make things basic for themselves. The I Am > I Was cut is only the kind of “story” that you bounce into without requiring quite a bit of a questioning. 21 flexes by the drove, without losing his dim kind. Counterbalance, progressively arranged to “couping the wrist,” conveys his truncated stream to the cutting room floor, just as we’d never heard or seen him flex. Welcome to the walkthrough as described by 21 Savage and his flashier countryman. “1.5” merits a turn for one reason alone: my shortlisted pick for “most loved line of the year.” See underneath in the quotable segment.
