Mayo - Tell Me

Posted 2 years ago
Tommy Jacob
Last EP

Mayo‘s last few DJBooth features found him preoccupied with his love life, whether that meant losing himself in Memories of an ex or trying to get with a shawty at the local spot. The Chi-Town repper’s latest promo single, Tell Me, by contrast, finds him contemplating his career. Backed by Tommy Jacob‘s pensive guitar/synth boardwork, the 19-year-old rhymesayer chronicles his struggle to turn his dreams into reality, while avoiding the many pitfalls of the music game: “Industry full of traps; I won’t fall for it / Fake smiles and handshakes but no, it’s not cordial.” For more, check out Jacob’s Last EP, which the beatsmith claims will be his final musical project.
