With hints of Talib Kweli, Sound AffeKtz produce a few tracks on Swanky, one being Horn Cry, as Joey speaks about being grateful for the musical opportunities, plus appreciation of his loyal fans.

Bad Habits is a great colab from a KC legend in Mac Lethal, and the two spazzed out with intriguing lyrics. Both Mac and Joey delivered their verses with intense flow and high energy which is a major plus for listeners. Joey's musical brother JL BHood makes his gracious return with Nobody Like Me featuring thePhantom. JL BHood is from KC, gives listeners another masterpiece, with Joey cohesively spitting his memories of growing up musically.
