"Take it Away" is like the epic trailer to a teenager undergoing their penultimate growth spurt. Sure the body composition isn't quite there, and the soul patch is a little on the ragged side, but who cares: the triumvirate synths hit you like Alex Trebeck's Daily Double. So if you happen upon RL Grime's "Take it Away" once it's fully unveiled in a matter of hours, ready your volume control because the synth line GOES.
RL Grime is a producer that is synonymous with this idea of musical fusion. In the future, we will do away with the concept of "genre" and producers like Grime will run rampant with their futurama ideology. Who's to say a conventional rapper wouldn't sound dope on a proper riddim. In the case of "Take it Away," RL Grime enlists the help of Ty Dolla $ign and TK Kravitz to round out his composition.
By the sounds of it, Ty Dolla $ign teases a more agreeable side, but don't think for a second his signature detachment has been upturned for something new. Ty sings "You are talking to a version of the old me," as parting shot to his lover, twice removed emotionally.
We the wave in this city now we taking off
What it take to make it we just work a lot
Saw the way we put it in make her drop her jaw
I'm like oh my god, oh my god, oh my god
-Ty Dolla $ign
