THE OFFICIAL ARTWORK for #CryLikeAManEP 🙌🏾🥳😭🥳😭🥳🙌🏾 . It’s been 2 and a half years since I put out any new music and in 20 days time another chapter of the story will be told. . So much work has gone into this project and I am incredibly nervous as to how it will be received – so as the countdown officially begins, I pray that whoever hears this project will enjoy the good music we have so tirelessly laboured to make… but more importantly, hold firm to the hope and truth we so boldly desire to profess. Keep Breathing! . #CryLikeAManEP out on all platforms – FRIDAY 21st FEBRUARY . 📸: @pawelspolnicki Artwork by: @blueelectrica ❤️❤️❤️
This new project centers on the themes of emotional vulnerability, fatherhood and the overall pressures life can throw at a man, and how we as human beings navigate through such tough terrains. What we have here is an honest exploration of what manhood looks like for so many young males across the world.
Sonically, the sound is raging from trap and soulful rap, down to the more traditional gospel aesthetics.
This album hits on the themes briefly touched on albums from artists like Stormzy and Chance the Rapper, while really delving into social issues and expanding on a genre which is so rapidly growing.
