While labeling Question a trailblazer might be a bit of a stretch, the former hustla-turned-techie-turned-rapper has certainly taken the path less traveled in his professional life. The San Antonio native delivers a winner with Intoxicated, a song about, well, paper chasing and getting twisted. Off his newly released mixtape, Xanax, Intoxicated is carried by Question’s powerful delivery, a surprisingly catchy hook sung by fellow San Antonian, Eddie B., and producer J.R. Rotem’s club-ready production (Certified, anyone?). Lyrically, Question manages to convey a heartfelt defense of his drug-addled past, resulting in an intensely personal street anthem. Question might be able to shoot a gun, push for profit, and fix your computer, but it’s clear that his true calling is on the mic.
