I love so many things about this track. First off I can't think of too many trap beats with strings so I was excited to bring that to the table. I wasn't sure at first whether all the triplets would work over 4/4 but rappers do that all the time and it adds complexity. If you're missing a synth bass, that's by design - I felt it would just clutter up the mix and I'd rather have the strings have air to breathe. And I just love the pitch shift on the drums in the interlude. It tightens up those 808s and gives them incredible punch. I've done that a couple of times before and it seems to work every time. Since the deadline is minutes away I'll post this but I'm definitely not done exploring this. Love to know what people think.
