Big Twins delivers one of his most emotionally gripping tracks to date with “Memories,” a heartfelt ode to lost family members, featuring Havoc, with stunning production supplied by Knxwledge.
Knx’s instrumental sets the tone for the track with layers of angelic samples paired beautifully with hard-hitting percussion. It’s Boom bap with a truly soulful tinge, and Big Twins’s raspy vocals complement the beat perfectly. He pays homage to the passing of his fraternal twin, Twin Scarface with thoughtful, gripping rhymes about losing his best friend and finally gaining the strength to live on.
Fellow Queensbridge heavyweight Havoc shares a similar story in his bars as he, too, sadly lost his own brother, Killa Black. Like Big Twins, Hav raps about pulling through the pain and continuing on with his life in spite of it all, and it’s hard not to get choked up when he refers to his late Mobb Deep partner, Prodigy, who passed away in June 2017: “I know you there with P and you just lightin’ up/ Up there in the heavens with your eye on us.”
