“Clocks Tickin” Chucky Workclothes lets the song build up in an unstoppable rhythm. Percussion has a nimble sensibility to it, as the dexterous approach helps to further emphasize the desire to achieve something more with a limited amount of time. With a light and airy melody is the reassuring vibes of “Believe It”. Downright gorgeous, the luxurious tasteful arrangement matches perfectly with the optimistic lyrics. An electro arrangement ties everything together on the confident “Never Coming Down”. The cinematic style of “Keep Mobbin” gives the song an epic, gargantuan feel to it. Presenting a rainy day sort of atmosphere is the hazy melody of “Kush Habit”. Beats hit hard on the energetic “What We Do”. Tension defines the eerie late-night jazzy approach of “Where We Goin’”. Over the course of the song the lyrics emphasize the anxiety that is built into the arrangement. Ending the album on a loose, laid-back groove is the funk-infused work of “Paper Stalker”.
