“Truth or Truth” is a 15-minute (!) lyrical cathartic release. That’s the best way to describe what is almost certain to be one of the highlights off their upcoming Gangsta Grillz project with DJ Drama. Over a soul refrain with screeching blues guitar licks, each man strips away their rap personas and detail what issues are weighing heavily on their souls. Nearly all touch on baby mothers and the stress of the music business. The foursome effortlessly moves between conversational and their traditional aggressive bars. As Budden has the most experience with these long-form introspective tracks, his verse stands out the most on first listen as he chronicles his never-ending female issues, substance abuse and a significant moment in his son’s consciousness. But with that said, there’s no falloff at any point. “Truth or Truth” is well worth the time.
