I suppose it was only a matter of time before Smoke DZA would reveal a disappointing track from his forthcoming album, T.H.C. (The Hustler’s Catalog). “Always Been” is basically just what you would expect from a guy with the word “smoke” in his name. It’s all about weed and women. That’s fine, of course, but there’s no creativity here and it doesn’t help that youngster Mac Miller opens up the track with a boring verse. At least Big K.R.I.T.’s production is catchy, even if it’s not enough to deal with the strobe light-effect that shimmers on and off throughout the above visuals.
T.H.C. is due out this April.
