Boston nat­ive and cel­eb­rated pro­du­cer-turned-rap­per Latrell James has dropped ‘Still’, the EP we’ve all been wait­ing for — a self-writ­ten, self-engin­eered and self-pro­duced body of excellence.

Fol­low­ing his debut pro­ject ‘Twelve’, Latrell James has become inter­na­tion­ally recog­nized for his artist­ic char­ac­ter, hon­est song­writ­ing and ver­sat­ile pro­duc­tion skills, work­ing with a wide range of well-known tal­ent includ­ing J.I.D, Lil Dicky, Cous­in Stizz, Khary, Michael Christ­mas, Pro Era’s Aaron Rose and most recently being fea­tured on J.Cole’s Dream­ville com­pil­a­tion tape ‘Revenge Of The Dreamers |||’. 

Fol­low­ing on from his first release of the year ‘Trac­phone’ which was affec­tion­ately dubbed by Afropunk as ‘an intel­lec­tu­al banger’, James con­tin­ued in the same vein with most recent track ‘One Call’. The single dives into the real­ism of mor­tal­ity over a bouncy melody, encour­aging listen­ers to check in on their friends in times of need. 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 in the game and James’ ori­gin­al, authen­t­ic sound as well as pos­it­ive men­tal­ity shows sol­id signs of a prom­ising future. 

Speak­ing on the EP, Latrell States: ‘Still is about embra­cing still­ness. With how much we spend on our phones and the inter­net we tend to miss everything that’s going on right in front of us. Still is being grate­ful but want­ing more.” 

Latrell James is truly a gift to rap and while his music is cel­eb­rated with­in Boston and rap­idly spread­ing around the world, he con­tin­ues to cre­ate noth­ing but bril­liance. With singles like ‘Trac­phone’ and ‘One Call’ set­ting the bar very high this year, we are not dis­ap­poin­ted with ‘Still’, a truly remark­able body of work.
