"I compete to win though I lose myself / In a penthouse room, with a view from hell"

Never Was Yours is a stark look at life’s often unforgiving path.  The  recognition of everything’s impermanance is reflected upon throughout the tracks lyrical display of wisdom.   Has-Lo tackles aging, disapointment, loss, financial woes, and the devils deals we make to attain success, all with a stoic’s calm and unflinching eye of a narrative reporter.   Underneath Has’ heavy lyricism, Kev Brown kicks another Low Budget classic.  Kev’s track features a funky guitar chop, minimal drum programming, and an atmospheric vocal sample to complete that completes the transformation. I must say, I’m really liking Has-Lo’s music.
