Numb is exactly how we feel after listening to this song, and it makes perfect sense because numb is exactly how you should feel after being smashed by bars – in the physical sense as well as in the lyrical one. This song is sonic-therapy. At this pace, Mitch Uta will never fall off; his route is superstardom-bound, and with every release, he seems to fortify his viability as a rapper.
This song is essentially split into two segments that could honestly stand alone as two passable joints, but it works way better this way. The first part is gentle but its lines can scorch you; it is as dark as it is soulful. I’d say “things get pretty interesting on the second segment”, but that ship has already left bay. The switch-up onto the second segment will probably catch many unaware; the tempo is taken up a notch, and the delivery up several notches.
The production as well as his demeanor are completely different in this segment; both have become significantly more aggressive – as they should. True to form, Mitch’s lines are intuitive and his singing vocals are crisp.
“Numb” is one of the few songs where I can say with my chest “you don’t have to take my word for it”.
