The project is available across all major streaming services, including SoundCloud. It features no guest appearances save for “Beautiful Scars,” the collaboration with fellow melodically-inclined rapper PnB Rock. It’s Gates’ first album since 2016’s Murder For Hire 2, which arrived shortly after the rapper’s official debut album Islah.
“GOMD” is one of the early highlights off the 14-track project, showcasing all of Gates’ strengths in one place. A bellowed hook finds the rapper braggy, confident, and defiant. Early on, he’s already throwing curveballs, slipping into a high register croon halfway through the chorus. Soon enough, he’s delivering urgent, emotional verses, reflecting on past trauma and describing his perseverance through the struggles.
