J.Good is such a hard act to follow, that most acts would be better off not even trying—even when he’s the opening act, he sounds like the Grand Finale. Don’t believe me? Just take a listen to his latest song release, which manages to sound climactic even outside the context of the project to which it’s attached. The follow-up to the Booth-approved Saved by the Bell, this joint finds Good delivering tightly-wound braggadocio over beatsmith Abjo‘s moody, subterranean sample work. First in Flight State representative and reader fave King Mez assists, stressing the importance of learning from mistakes and delineating his no-nonsense approach to the game in a characteristically well-executed guest verse. Feeling it? There are plenty more bangers where this came from on J.Good’s Bluffington Heights LP, available now for digital purchase via Bandcamp.
