While some artists try to jam all of themselves into their first project, Unconditional is only an introduction to Qualah’s many sides. Like cracking open a book, a blunt, or a brewski, you’re bound to find your vice in Unconditional.
UNconditional proves that one can be a lady where she wants to be and a freak when she wants to be. The five-track ep has a huge “can I live?” vibe, from resurrecting harmonies about being your queen to dropping bars about getting your self-respect up, hints of Qualah’s personal journey can be heard throughout the ep on every level.
On the ep’s opening track “Savage”, (first of all, love the title) Qualah finesses a motivational r&b track into a thuggy dedication to defining your own character.
“They not going to take you seriously until you get yourself respect up. We all go through struggles but you really gotta hustle to keep your mind right.”
Produced by Glory Muzic, the track revolves around the fixed frames placed upon people daily. The idea that only you can define who you are is what makes “Savage” a primo introduction track.
There’s an irresistible charisma that oozes a person who knows what they want and what they are willing to sacrifice to get that weight up.
“Weight” proves that there is no love lost between the rapper and emotional muggers.
“Weight” is the second track from Qualah’s UNconditonal. Produced by PaulCabbinBeats, “Weight”, doesn’t hide behind grand gestures of metaphors and similes about the letter G in lasagna. Qualah comes at the track with a provoked precision that leaves no room for mistaken affection.
“This is for the internet thugs that think you won’t get touched,
Ctrl, Atl, Delete your ass.”
Our favorite track from Unconditional is “Remedy”. This three-minute serenade takes us back to the vault.
Like deeeeeeeeeep in the vault.
We’re talking about (not to make you feel old) 13 years ago, to a Trina and Kelly Rowland collaboration mixed with essences of “Cater 2 U” from Destiny child. For all our thuggy readers, if you were looking for a valentine’s day remedy, Qualah’s “Remedy” might be just what you need.
The track is real, it’s savage yet it feels smooth, sincere, and sexy making “Remedy” is definitely a V-Day playlist must.
