On the second track from his new series of songs, Headphone Classics, iCON the Mic King describes how he learned the hard facts of life. Making another guest appearance is Awar, a fellow emcee recently signed to iCON’s label, Master Works Unlimited, who returns to back up iCON. The grandiose 80’s-style synth licks that bump throughout are held together by a bass-heavy, low-end drumbeat, courtesy of up-and-coming producer Vanderslice. The result is a huge sound that reflects the big picture iCON is trying to relate in the hook: the emotions of struggle and the effect and change they can have on a person. iCON raps, “I put my best in, gave it all it takes / And at the end of the day met a fall from grace.” Though the track is in-your-face hip-hop, the lyrics tell an intricate and dark story of betrayal and reality.
