Amidst breaking away from his weed carrier status as a former member of The Diplomats, putting on and bringing up his own set of bag handlers and collabing with Weezy on an album that's been in the works since Tha Carter 2 Days, it's been about a minute since Juelz has graced us on his lonesome. And with a little help from Rihanna's ex, they look to recreate some of that magic which was ubiquitous BUT so god damn infectious back in 05. But they're grown now and club dance offs with cute shorties aren't gonna cut it anymore - action's at the crib now. Juelz knows this and he's not gonna be rushed. Chris knows this too and with a couple of flirty hooks, you're riding with "Lamborghini Breezy" and the past is the past. A slow burn club jam, Polow Da Don laces the drums with in-n-out horns and popcorn machine vibes. Though not as immediate as "Run It", this is still worthy of a spot in anyone's car stereo.
