Step­ping out with a pro­ject of self-explor­a­tion of con­duct filled with emotive tapestry, Ollie Rolland returns with a highly anti­cip­ated EP ‘Nar­ciss­ist’.

Every inch as thought pro­vok­ing as his pre­vi­ous single ‘Kickin In,’ Ollie’s latest offer­ing brings forth vul­ner­able emo­tions after loos­ing a loved one. The rap­per effort­lessly encom­passes hap­pi­ness whilst nav­ig­at­ing through pain and struggles. The EP show­cases the rapper’s cheeky char­ac­ter coupled with a grow­ing col­lec­tion of killer tracks that will hit all the sweet spots.

“It was after loos­ing my good friend Troy (Troyboy/TB) that made me explore the ini­tial sub­ject. It was at a time of many rel­ev­ant people dying and oth­ers using it for per­son­al gain. I got people close to me from the time and made some­thing that rep­res­en­ted the hap­pi­ness, pain and struggles exper­i­enced,”

Not only bring­ing a wel­comed slice of pos­it­iv­ity, his unmatch­able lyr­ic­al word­play and show­man­ship has made him fur­ther determ­ined to con­tin­ue his aim for big­ger and bet­ter. Which is show­cased in this self-writ­ten and self-pro­duced EP recor­ded in Amer­ica fea­tur­ing Squad (T.P.E.), KD Bandz and Real­NamePryn­cess.

Delving into the EP that provides novice listen­ers on a story-telling jour­ney, the track ‘Stresses’ is an intern­al dia­logue of Ollie’s thoughts when going through tough times. While ‘Com­pare Me’ is a slow grind with almost bor­der­line RnB feels evok­ing emo­tions.

Whilst rel­at­ively new to the music scene, Ollie dis­plays all the skills of an artist who has honed his craft over the years and is ready to spread his music with his own style and flair.
