His inner restlessness propels songs here like “Drive & Destroy,” “Poisonous Products,” and “Questions and Answers,” all of which reinforce the rapper’s personal power even as they contradict some of his previous statements. These internal and external conflicts resulted in a roaring return to pure street rap in the form of “Duck Down,” the most gloriously vicious song he’d recorded since his debut.
