Mikkey Halsted has always walked that line between saint and sinner so well in his raps, taking on the role of one who doesn’t want to do bad but knows the options are few so bad is what you do. And better to help Mikkey talk about the perils of the lifestyle than Pusha T? Hearing the two go back-to-back rekindles the idea that Halsted still would be a star in the G.O.O.D. stable.
Overall though, it’s not the fictional “Momma” who’s all in Mikkey’s ear. That’s Chop’s fire and brimstone beat that makes death seem like it’s right around the corer.
