Following his debut project Twelve, diverse, award winning artist and producer Latrell James comes through with his first offering of 2019 in “Tracphone“.
“Tracphone” finds James effortlessly flowing over a self-produced, dangerously bouncy and melodic beat. It’s simply constructed and delightfully nonchalant, plus the whole track together has a subtle groove. With “Tracphone” as Latrell’s first statement of the year, James’ original, authentic sound and positive mentality shows early signs of a promising future.
Latrell shared his thoughts on the track: “’Tracphone’ to me is when you no longer feel like you belong in a place where you grew up. It’s those lone footprints in the snow. Gentrification takes a toll on communities of colour and I wanted make light of that while also highlighting other important issues that affect us too.”
“‘Tracphone’ is more of a metaphor for wanting to hold onto things that are “old” vs the new — and overall being proud of who you are and where you come from.”
Latrell James has become nationally recognized for his sincere sense of artistic character, working with a wide range of well-known talent including Lil Dicky, J.I.D, Cousin Stizz and many more. A strong work ethic, exceptional production skills and a genuine consideration for the growth of the Boston Hip Hop scene has made him one of the most respected artists from the area.
