On “Pack”, we discovered that Absolute is a real student of the trap game with familiar wordplay. Nothing crafty but its catchy dude to the simplicity and trendy references. Indulging in all the textbook emotions of a trapper, Absolute exhibits ego, swagger, boasting and bragging and southern lingo. Checking everything off the check list, he undoubtedly drops a must-hear track if your a trap enthusiast.
In the end, the song’s concept is nothing unheard of and while good, it doesn’t stick out as a breakaway hit. It has a bounce but the song only has a short life span in the artist’s career pivotal moment. Momentarily, “Pack” is a great attention-grabber for the new artist with his slick talk, motivating paper chase and cliche keywords.
