There is nothing like a great sample to get me hyped for a song. On “Dreams,” Alchemist doesn’t disappoint as he uses a pristine and heavenly sample that gives Fashawn and Evidence all the room they need to spit their intricate bars. The song is especially powerful considering everything the U.S. has been through in the past few weeks with Ferguson and Eric Garner. Through police sirens and a sample that sings “All the young boys dream,” Fashawn and Evidence detail the plight of growing up in an urban environment that instantly places many at a disadvantage do to institutional inequalities.
