What's “peripheral vocals"? It's a feature of this track. Did a Google search but nothing relevant showed up. Anyone with an idea don't be shy, hmu. My curiosity as a recording artist is itching, lol.

Hands down the best story album in rap. I know few MCs who can insert a comedic element to their narrative as fluently & naturally as the ruler.
