Looking for some pointers on developing the combination of diligence, skill, drive and panache that makes Damani the paragon of freshness that he is? Well… tough luck. On this newly-released single, the Westurn Union member admits that there’s no trick to it at all; he’s simply Been This Way since he came out his mother’s womb. Disappointing as this revelation may be, Damani breaks the news to his would-be imitators in such a fresh fashion that they’ll soon be nodding along in spite of themselves. Flowing over My God producer Hit-Boy‘s gritty organ grooves, the Inglewood emcee chronicles his lifelong relationship with greatness, waxing poetic about his inborn drive to obtain currency, his facility with females and his spotless appearance, all the while showcasing a self-assured swag befitting a Snoop Dogg cosignee. And he’s versatile to boot, doubling as his own hookman on the hummable chorus. Like what you’re hearing? Even if you don’t share Damani’s inherently fresh genetic makeup, you’ll be able to bask in his radiance Feb. 23, when his On Vacation From Vacation LP hits record stores and online retailers.
