The spacey track kicks off with synth-drenched production by Yellow Days’ George Van Den Broek and features additional vocals by singer Lynda Dawn. “Life been good, life been well/ Brother beat the case and not goin’ to jail,” raps Wilson on the opening verse. “Spirit out the gutter, mind out the cell/ Mama prayin’ for me, knowin’ I can’t fail.”
According to the rapper, his chemistry with Van Den Broek was practically instantaneous when they began collaborating on the song. “George made this beat and I immediately had words in my head,” he said, while the mind behind Yellow Days added, “I remember Ric went for a walk to write some lyrics and I wrote this guy in like a couple hours. He would always come back and I’d done a whole new track for him to do. He did a lot of walks.”
To support the EP, the pair will be heading out on a North American headlining tour starting November 10th in Seattle. Tickets can be purchased through Ticketmaster.
