The production is straightforward yet effective, but TG 318 himself is what makes “Lift Off” stand out from the rest. Charisma and flair define his performance, and clever writing in his bars keeps you chuckling and eagerly anticipating the next punchline…
“You Was Family” is a rewarding listen for the foreground and background. You can focus in to appreciate the storytelling and the finer details of his multiple flows, or you can play it for the ambience and sing along with the hook and nod your head absently to the beat.

“Husoul” is a song that refuses to sit in the background and be ignored. Substantive, gripping bars cover nearly every second of the track.

“Control” is an experience that captivates, one that leaves you savoring tastes of catharsis while spiralling back to the Earth at its end. I can imagine no better way for Becca James to begin her career.
This is an ambitious concept for a song, one that could very easily fall apart if the execution is even slightly lacking. Fortunately for us (and Alden) he successfully threaded the needle.
