“From his latest album Dayday, “Dolla Billz” speaks on the trappings of seeking money in the streets. It’s layered over a dreary self-produced beat with cinematic horns, and Brown sings on the hook: “Dollar bills just come to me, let’s runaway, no fumbling, no funds / My brother said that n***as die like every day, don’t you be the one.”
On the track “Project Baby” from Dayday, Brown flexes his higher pitched singing voice, contrasting his more hoarse low-pitched rap voice, telling the tales of an inner city hustler. “Visions of the green but just how far can we take it / headed to the re-up, pray to god that I make,” he sings. His raps counter these contemplating thoughts not only in pitch, but in perspective: “I got that burner on me I’m a hitta / She bout to tell her friends how I did it, came up from the basement like I’m Tigga.” It’s this duality of singing and rapping that makes Brown standout throughout his growing catalog of music.” – CLTure
