1. Go Green (feat Lyris)
This track starts off the album with a hard-stabbing synth backtrack and some playful overlays. It introduces the listener to Dirk LP’s unique brand of vocalizing and lyrical flow.
2. Rap On
In the next track, the piano at the forefront gives a sense of importance in what Dirk LP is saying. The guitar brings the song to an epic-sounding level.
True to the title of the track, the bassline is prominent. It has a jazzy, funky feel and holds the track together.
4. Grindin’ (In My Sleep)
This track has a softer groove which allows for more reflection on Dirk LP’s lyrics.

This is definitely a slower track which has a strong collaboration with Ducci and Florian Starks. The song focuses on the message of staying true to oneself and persevering through the obstacles.
6. Breeze Out
Another awesome track by Dirk LP that has sweeping synths and a solid beat.
7. The Truth
Another slow jam with a softer delivery and minimalistic music
8. How We Get Down (feat. Donny Arcade)
This track has a great feeling of an old blues jam with epic piano chords and a soft jazzy guitar. This is the perfect background for the collaboration
9. Foreplay (feat. B. Kush)
A playful interlude
10. Hot and Heated
A classic West-Coast feel with mellow vocalization.
11. The Culture
This track immediately has a feel of belonging in a movie soundtrack with its high note piano and strings.
12. Da Realest
Features a complex rhythm and quick stabbing organ, which gives a rougher edge.
The sped-up vocal samples in this track give it a very interesting and catchy sound.
14. Mr. McGinnis
This song truly highlights Dirk LP’s philosophy of life and the music industry. The music has an honest and sincere feel.

Electro rhythm with phased synths
