He may be a former Division 1 athlete himself, but that isn’t why Rexx Life Raj uses Stephen Curry as his talisman on “Young Wardell.” Rather, it’s because of Curry’s dominance due to hard work, not just physical talents. Raj has been grinding hard, perfecting his lyrical and melodic crafts, and his work is beginning to pay off with songs like “Young Wardell.”
On the track, Rexx Life Raj takes a spacious, off-kilter beat by Ian McKee and light it up with his melodic, impeccably timed flows. Despite the song’s slower tempo, it definitely goes hard. Raj raps about needing to take risks to make it out of difficult situations. “Every shot is a risk. It’s not a guaranteed bucket, but you’ll never know until you shoot.” Keep shootin’, young fella.
We tryna do shit, they don't wanna let us
nigga we eating, that's bread and the lettuce

I pay up front, no need for the credit
