Jacquees join force with a forlorn Wale on “Against Me.”
On “Against Me” the script is flipped onto its side, with Jacquees perceiving change, not in himself, but in his partner. Wale, on the other hand, is more self-effacing on “Against Me” than I’d ever imagined. But even so, the introspective look is lost in a myriad of playful musings. Other records that Jacquees reworks on QUEMIX 3 are equally chilling,
Lord knows we’ve got issues we misuse our love
I miss you, you miss me, we aim to no a-
vail, I just want someone to grow with
You just want someone to grow up
I ain’t talking about no Sgt. Slaughter
But I order shawty a lil cobra clutch.
