highlight that finds Haystak in a
contemplative moment, looking back on his childhood and giving thanks to his
grandmother for all the sacrifices that she made in raising him. What makes
this song even better is the relaxed vibe that it exudes and the emphatic horn
blasts that accentuate Haystak‘s
backdrop nicely. The same laid-back, relaxed feel works well on Can’t Tell Me Nothing, and Some Of That.

Unfortunately, only about half of the tracks are noteworthy,
but those that are do offer an enjoyable listening experience. One thing that
is certain upon hearing Car Fulla White
