“Trade Offs” is a hard hitting hip hop track that reflects determination and triumph. As the title suggests, Chief Maez speaks to his younger self and the sacrifices and trade offs he must make in order to achieve his dream. Maez delivers smooth bars throughout “Trade Offs” in a calm yet assertive manner. The production style and heavy bass beat helps to add extra flare in completing the artist’s best song to date.
