The Mi’kmaq rapper is out for blood with this release. Each track is, on the surface, aggressive and urgent. Grant cleverly disguises the real messages under a layer of sex and fast living, but upon closer listening it’s clear his aspirations are important to him. The struggle of achieving goals and reaching new heights is a lyrical constant, even if the package is a little over the top.

There are some softer moments. “Coming My Way” is the second to last song of the EP and has more of a chill, R&B vibe than the rest. The harsh bass is traded out for warped and muted synth, and features sung vocals from Harmony Adesola, stylized as “Harmz”. There’s less focus on a physical relationship, instead exploring emotional connections. It’s a standout track because of its change of pace, and shows Grant’s versatility.
