The truth hurts. On “Cold” Staten Islander Tyrone Briggs gleefully highlights the reality he’s learned to accept: no one owes you anything and few people will go out of their way to help. It’s a bleak outlook, but Briggs commits to it, using the chilling Sean Nathaniel-produced instrumental to mercilessly castigate the people who don’t share his outlook as well as the people who attempted to exploit him before he adopted it. This is a revenge tale told by a man who got his revenge and thoroughly enjoyed it. Listen below.
