Mickey Woods, Jr. was on my playlist due to the impact of UGK. The powerhouse rap duo littered my childhood with beats, thoughts and memories. When a friend asked me, “Yo, you heard about the new Port Arthur dude?” I was in. I hadn’t heard any rap from the area since UGK and whoever came out, must have something.

40D40n popped. His wordplay was nice and I got the vibe of somebody about to bring the real 16bars, spit about the complexities of life beyond the typical “drug game rapper”. I was excited thinking that he would have a unique style, “outside-the-box” verbiage or just you know, be DEEP but cool. The next few tracks were different with the technics, beats and chorus but none just stood out OUT. Song #7, fill the void, introduced Breona Mecole and Mickey Wood’s lyrics played well with her singing the background. Deja Vu featuring Dinero and TTBBY was cool beans but my semi-favorite joints on the album were Remedy and The Usual. Each of these tracks gave Mickey a soft melody to spin his lyrics off and he responded with a deep chorus and intriguing verses.

relocated a mountain brought the album back to its original feel/vibe and I appreciated that.
