The Def Squad release that also involves Raekwon, AZ, Big K.R.I.T., Xzibit and Too Short begins with sizzling bars from Payne. Now, kicking it in E-Double’s Jeep Wrangler, Payne brings those verses to living color. Although co-signed by “The Green-Eyed Bandit,” this particular track is produced by DJ Kanzer. Payne has bold lyrics. “Fresh out the kitchen with crack / I’m on my sh*t; I’ve been itching to snack / I’m Erick Sermon with the fisherman hat / The best bars, modern-day Def Squad, the new addition to that / Reggie Noble Jr, how wicked is dat? / Ugly torture walkin’ through muddy waters, bunch of ni**as in black / You punch the clock; I punch ni**as that rap / The pump’ll lift up your hat / Knock off the brim and the skin is attached.” RJ knows the Def Squad pedigree and believes in himself enough to make Redman and E comparisons.
