Peep the awesome bar piano and doo-wop throwback of "Arthur's Song," which has Slug sipping on something and confessing (most likely) his sins and thoughts about his last cigarette a few years back. Rap fans that know these OGs know exactly what they're going to get when these guys deliver the tunes. There are never any surprises, nothing too flashy: there's the standard gimmicky track that borrows its name from a celebrity (this time around Slug blows a sonic kiss to wifey on "Kanye West"), and the rest of the album is all head-nods and life lessons. It's a tried, tested and true formula that has allowed these two humble cats from the land where Kirby Puckett smacked homers to do this for so long. Here's to many more years. (Rhymesayers)
