Translee has carved a unique trajectory in Hip Hop's contemporary landscape. He holds himself to different standards in comparison to his fellow southern rappers by infusing freshness into the term "conscious rap." The homie did it again with his latest release. The Freedom Summer EP dropped today accompanied by a music video for the title track.
The project is filled with organic sounds and old-school samples, like the B.o.B and GFMBryyce-featured "Generation WTF" that employs a vocal sample from Bill Wither's "Use Me." Freedom Summer also features a previous collaborator, T.I.P, as well as Omari Hardwick.
Each track has its own reason for being. The sonic pallet varies and flows in alignment with the variety of themes he explores. The versatility found on this project is mindful and representative of the artist's worldview. Translee comments on this subject briefly in his Soundcloud bio.
“Every day aint the same, sometimes you want to talk about God, sometimes you want to talk about drugs, sometimes you want to talk about love”.
