For all the rappers who encourage listeners to chase after their dreams, there are precious few who provide advice you can really take to the bank. Buff1, however, has that rare combination of artistic passion and practicality – and on unreleased cut Eyes on Success, the Michigan resident teaches fans a lesson on how to stay levelheaded with your vision in the clouds. Over P-Money‘s soul-sampled boardwork, the up-and-comer shares his perspective on the pursuit of big goals, offering some nuanced counsel to young people: “Y’all just toddlers that follow whatever rappers say? Well I’m a rapper, I say go to school and graduate, if it’s an ends to a means, / if you’ve got another plan, man, stick to your dreams.” On the back, Big Time emcee David Dallas aims a few sharp words at his peers in the game, notably advising rappers to lay off “that ‘80s sh*t..” This record isn’t set to appear on any forthcoming album, but those who like what they’re hearing should be sure to check out the official video, viewable here.
