We haven't heard from Alabama's Rich Boy since he dropped off the Curren$y-assisted "Flight (Burning One)" back in September, but today he returns strapped with a new heater. "Paradise" features Lil Heck and Dev, and is a remarkably lush-sounding banger.
The instrumental is made up of twinkling piano keys, wriggling synths and ethereal backing vocal samples, all tied together with a no-nonsense 808 beat. Rich Boy kicks things off by unleashing a tight-knit flow in which he compares himself to King Tut and shouts out2 Live Crew's "Face Down, Ass Up." Lil Heck and Dev do their respective things on the hook and next verse, rounding out a dope track.
'Bama boy, I rep the state
Fuck who talkin', let 'em hate
Drop that heat, don't make 'em wait
Right on time, never late
