Heems drops "Eat Pray Thug" single "Sometimes."

Former Das Racist member Heems is a man of dichotomies. Sometimes he writes hard, sometimes he writes lazy; sometimes he's got game, sometimes he's mad shy. His new single "Sometimes" lays all of these seemingly incongruous traits out for the listener, and makes for one hell of a lead single from his upcoming, amazingly-titled album, Eat Pray Thug. It drops on March 10th, and will feature production from Harry Fraud and Dev Hynes, among others.

Heems shared the track with the following statement:

“‘Sometimes’ is about dualities, identity and the space between spaces. Like so many other people, as a first generation South Asian in the U.S. I often felt like I lived two lives, an Indian one and an American one. I lived, at once, in and between two spaces and outside them as well. On another level, I also often felt like in America I lived in the space between black and white. Dualities are normal though. As fun as rap is, I can’t always feel happy. Sometimes I feel sad too. It also pays homage to hip-hop before me with cadences referencing both Nice and Smooth and Busta Rhymes.”

Quotable Lyrics

Get low
Now I'm in the corner of the club
No old friends, no new friends, love
Made enough friends like I play in The Wrens
Made enough friends, no room in the Benz
Get hype, boy I be rhymin' like Bust, trust
The rap shit, this be nothing to us
Pass the Courvoisier, baby just jump
Yeah I got that water like a camel, riding in the hump
