Her Loss is largely the same, with the duo leaning into a shared disdain for less-successful artists (“On BS,” “Privileged Rappers,” “Broke Boys”),
sharing their opinions on modern courtship (“Spin Bout U,” “Hours in Silence”), explaining what it’s like to be a super rapper (“Circo Loco,” “Pussy & Millions”), and, in one instance, rapping about Their apparent love for one another may initially raise questions, but to do so would be to intentionally deny the fact that making music with your best friend by your side is just plain more enjoyable.
