Although the project didn’t receive what it deserved receiving little to no placement on many year-end best-of lists that doesn’t detract from the magnitude of how great of a body of work the 19 track project is.
“30’s 50’s 100’s” is one of the smoothest and most soothing tracks on “Fully Loaded’s sonically eclectic track list playing off the 300 Entertainment artist’s laid back, chill, calming cadence and pitch-perfect voice on the polished production provided by Young God whose gorgeous work adds gravitas to his weighty words. He raps “Oh you heard I’m gettin’ rich? /Well that’s a fact, remember I ain’t had shit / And a nigga had to jack / Use to run up with the MAC”. stating “Yeah, they call me young Jefe from the bottom of the map / We got 30s, 50s, 100s, on the bottom of these straps”. Cloaked in shadows Glizzy reminisces on his past in a shadowy room with a floor full of bullet shells with small beams of light adding a bit of luminescence.
