Applaud DJ Mustard, the real MVP and altruist who stuffed his own debut album, 10 Summers, full of crusty value-brand beats so that RJ & Choice could instead flourish with the best of Mustard's top-shelf production on this here mixtape tip. "Can't Slow Down" is a misty intro shattered by RJ's lashing out via bursts of indelible imagery, e.g., "washing broken dishes," wrung somber by Mustard's signature simplicity with the piano. Rarely does "getting my dough up" sound rather like the blues. Bonus points to Mustard for flipping "Dre Day," a diss track, into a danceable wave on "Get Rich."
