While Lil Wayne's Funeral (2020) might have topped this week's Billboard Hot 200 Albums chart and secured his fifth number one studio album to date, Pop Smoke's sophomore musical offering in Meet The Woo 2 (2020), will open the door for the 20-year-old to become an internationally known musician. With album cuts like "Shake The Room," "Foreigner," "Mannequin," and more the Brooklyn emcee has proven he can properly form a consistent, full-length project. The LP offers an additional B-side track called "Get Back" that might find its way to some major playlists in the near future.
"Get Back's" production is the perfect balance of organized chaos and classic hip-hop elements. An indistinguishable horn/string sample quietly holds the song's melody while periodically a soft piano riff adds an extra musical component to the beat. However, the thunderous 808 bass line and police sirens dominate the instrumental as Pop Smoke aggressively delivers a plethora of gun bars letting his opposition know to stay back. The combination of Juju on the Beat, Yoz Beatz, and Pop Smoke is a trio that knows how to curate quick hits in under a two-minute time frame.
