Released on Friday (Nov. 30), the MC channels two sides of the same coin. “The Man Who Has Everything” rings similar to the low-key singles that propelled the 25-year-old’s gospel-themed album into critical acclaim. This joint plays up the light-hearted sounds of choir-based instrumentals with a deep-pocketed base drum that ties the record together.
Tapping Joey Purp, another Chi-town native, “My Own Thing” is the more upbeat of the pair. Centering the song around the bubbly piano keys that have become a part of the “Blessings” artist’s signature sound, the Stix, JustSpvnk, B-Real, Eric Butler & Verner produced song is a high-energy three-minute bop capable of lifting any mood.
These two additions complete a total of six singles that have yet to be claimed for a forthcoming album, but the father-of-one has confirmed his involvement in an upcoming Netflix series that doubles as a rap competition. He will be judging rap star hopefuls alongside fellow MCs like T.I. and Cardi B.
