How does a duo comeback from a long period of inactivity? Not like this. Downtown featuring M&RL’s entire squad it seems, try their hardest, but their most isn’t enough to successfully create a track as absurd as this. It has its moments, with the song’s chorus a high note and the pop-culture references fine-tuned, but come on, what were they thinking?

Harsh right, but to be fair, I loved The Heist, just not this. What do you think? Please share in the comments below.
