    With unwavering confidence, Ronn!e lyrically deconstructs his doubters over heavy production on the project’s fourth track, “Never Perfect,” which features King Louie. His throttling cadence and natural ability as a rapper highlight a lethal edge in his repertoire. Self-doubt is replaced with steadfast conviction, confidence, and a tireless work ethic, themes that persist throughout the album’s subsequent tracks, “You Wouldn’t Remember” and the Mick Jenkins-assisted closer, “Dreams.”

    The album concludes as personally as it began. On “Dreams,” with Mick Jenkins’ support, Ronn!e speaks directly to the listener, reiterating the hardships he faced while chasing his dreams. Acknowledging self-doubt, skepticism, and lack of support, he displays a vulnerability rarely seen from an artist’s debut. This candid approach adds an authentic touch to his music.

    Ronn!e proves himself to be an artist worth watching and even obsessing over. The dynamic ability showcased on “Better This Way” will leave listeners in awe of what he will create next. As he moves forward, there’s no doubt he will continue to explore his untapped potential, keeping his unique brand of cool intact while he continues on this journey of resilience and artistry.
