This track appeared on Funkmaster Flex’s compilation mixtape, Who You Mad At? Me or Yourself? Cole apparently did most of the work on the track last year, but did not finish the song because he wanted to focus on his upcoming album, Born Sinner. Cole produced Maine on Fire himself. It’s a different kind of beat than what we normally get from Cole, but I don’t think it goes especially well with his flow on the song. His lyrics are still fire though (as you might have expected from the song’s title), so it’s definitely worth a listen. Born Sinner drops June 25.
