Riff: Trav – “Rolled Up”

Nov 20, 2017

On like a light switch/I like my bitches to like bitches/I be your man or your side nigga/As long as I get time to vibe with you

from Rolled Up lyrics by Trav

A smoked out beat has Trav and company living the high life. They’re bombed out of their minds, exchanging juvenile stories about their stable of loose women. The room is so foggy that it has them spinning in circles and repeating the same stories verbatim; a sloven effort that leaves partygoers feeling listless. The only thing it has going is the hook, which is decent but not strong enough to make up for the amateur effort. No one is looking for Trav to be the next Frank Ocean, but his turnstile musings are circular and redundant; the last thing you want in your speakers when trying to liven up the party.
