Porter does not cease to impress listeners with his lyrical proficiency and even proceeds to kick the bar up a notch in the next song “Do You Remember” featuring BDA The Producer.

On the final track on the album, Porter switches things up with “Perfect Timing” featuring Sanjardo B and Selecta Chronic.
