“Like Dat” beings with BallOnEm declaring early in the first verse that he’s from East Warren Avenue. It sets the tone of the song, declaring BallOnEm’s pride in his home turf as well as establishing a powerful flow that he then gets into. What he lacks for in technical ability, he makes up for in swagger and delivery. The moderate-tempo track features the Detroit-lyricist spitting sinister, street-centric punchlines at a plodding pace. It’s great for building the suspense and makes the entire track enveloped in an ominous vibe
