“Rakhi produced the rippling, liquid psychedelic track, which samples the Isley Brothers’ ‘That Lady’ and which moves fluidly from one section to the next.” – Stereogum

“Entitled i, the track follows in the footsteps of The Beastie Boys and Charles Hamilton, and samples That Lady by the Isley Brothers.” – The Guardian

“It’s the rapper’s first tune as a lead artist since 2012 and it features a funky sample of the Isley Brothers’ ‘That Lady.’” – Rolling Stone

“If the sample heard through out the funk-infused track sounds familiar, it’s because it’s Isley Brothers’ ‘That Lady.’” – Billboard
