I'm not sure what to say about this song because it is so nice. The beat and instrumentals, produced by Nicolas Jaar, are sublime; drum sounds rattle around and pulse and bump the track onwards, ethereal chords like the warm breath of heartfelt empathy on the necks of the hopeless, the people and areas that vocalist DJ Slugo aka Thomas Kendricks describes throughout the track. Each description follows with "I am ghetto."

Later in the track, however, the beat becomes less fragmented, the synth grows, a fuzzy melody becomes legible in the gentle shadows of the track. DJ Slugo changes tack, too, speaking not of the problems faced, but of the problems overcome:

From the sounds of guns in the street turned into the beat in my head, tracks laid, bills paid, children graduating to become college students, the truth is, God saw fit to save me. I am now hope.

It was made "in light of recent events" – events that could, can, and very much do make people feel hopeless. DJ Slugo wants people to remember that it's possible not just to live through things like this, but to win, to succeed, to elevate yourself above and beyond your background and become an inspiration.
