Per Jayson Greene's Pitchfork review of "Sideways" from Decatur-bred Playboy Tre's Liquor Store Mascot mixtape:
"Sometimes I wake up and be like, 'Man, fuck you even wake up for?'" Playboy Tre grumbles at the beginning of "Sideways". To call this sentiment "vintage Playboy Tre" would be disorienting to the 90% of the world that has never heard of him, so introductions are in order: Tre is a 30-something Atlanta vet with a history of almost-made-its in his past (ran with Bohagon when he was a Lil Jon signee; writes occasional hooks for T.I. and others) and a penchant for the kind of grown-ass-man introspection that almost nobody outside of Scarface bothers with anymore.
