"Throw It Back" (prod. by Izze the Producer)
Rich Homie tells us on the "Intro" that he coulda been a doctor, a lawyer, but he chose "skreetz," and the streets owe him big time.
It's not that the game isn't wearing on him--he's smoked enough to start "seein illusions," fucked enough women--"hope I ain't got no cooties." Though the theme of the tape is ultimately family, whatever Quan's rapping about, he promises he's going in, and as soon "Throw It Back" starts, we know Quan's feelin' himself.
Izze the Producer is one of the hottest commodities in Atlanta, who's also recently given beats to Lil Durk and Yo Gotti. He crafts a subtle EDM bassline that slowly turns RHQ up to the max, until he reaches peak charisma--and nastiness. Quan whispers "throw it back," soon expanding on the sentiment: "Throw it back like I'm pitchin' and you catchin'" Then, rhetorically, Quan asks: "Like a wide receiver right after he catch it; He gon' do what?"
Only Rich Homie, who brings serious affection to all his sexual curiosities, could get away with the pitching/catching metaphor. Only RHQ could turn this hookless sex jam into a bona fide piece of pop romance.
