Hamilton, ON – The Bo$ Clique homies are back at it with EJ Grant‘s latest single release titled “Take It Easy.” Don’t misunderstand the whole “Take It Easy” thing. This isn’t a joint about smoking green and chilling out. This is a track about finding a balance in life. Ya heard? EJ Grant wants y’all to “Take It Easy” for life.

Fellow Bo$ Cliquian, B3auu, did the beat on this track. It’s a smoked-out floating beat. Which makes sense. Check it below.

So let’s talk about the first verse. EJ admits that when he started penning honest rhymes, his peers got salty: “Started getting real with the honesty/ They couldn’t take it/ Talking to each other/ They aint fond of me.” But let’s be real here – rap cats who can’t take it easy tend to hate on the rap cats who can.

Dre. Square hits us on the hook and EJ delivers a second verse all about the women. He starts off with a line about rolling papers with his lady. It’s important to note that he says “lady,” not “ladies.”

He admits that he used to love hoes, but he now realizes that they’re all ingrowns. Then he goes into this really descriptive detailing. I may be wrong, but I think he’s comparing hoes to ingrown nails: “Foul/ Tryin’ to pop in from the inside.” Ew. That’s vivid.
