Meaning

It starts out with some powerful horns fit for a street anthem, and Chance harmonizes with them. The deep, hard hitting kicks of drums soon greet him. No samples were in the record, and the beat was done in just 45 minutes. Ohh, Chance did acid too, ironic huh?:

It cuts back to the horns, then the verse comes in with just the drums, this time with some hits, slow yet soothing. Horns come in and out, sometimes with the drums and sometimes solo. Snare drums and cymbal hits greet us near the end.

The horns are in the hook with Chance’s vocals, and some techno type synths in the back. The same beat comes in for the verse, but Chance’s rhymes and the slight differentiation in horns keeps it moving for the listener.

Ab-Soul is able to carry the varying beat with a commanding lead. It heads back to the hook and the prevalent horns before it cuts out to silence quick. You now have the end to the smoker joint.
