DJ Khaled has returned with the lead single of his upcoming Father Of Asahd, enlisting the talents of Quavo, Chance The Rapper, and Bugatti Biebs. Despite the supporting cast’s overall pedigree, “No Brainer” fails to traverse any sort of new ground, thus resulting in a harmless and equally unmemorable bopper.
It’s hard to fully commit to critiquing the latest anthem from DJ Khaled, given the mogul’s generally affable nature. Yet there’s something truly egregious about hearing Quavo used in such a blatant cookie-cooker pop style; after all, this man came up dropping some of Atlanta’s hardest mixtapes. Now he’s brought the “mama” ad-lib to commercial radio. Perhaps it’s a sign of expanding real estate. Yet one has to wonder where the line in the sand gets drawn.
