Talonted - Belong Here

Tags: Talonted
Producer:
Notty Beatz
Album:
"7"

Everyone goes on a journey of self-discovery at some point in their lives, but few do it on the mic; New Jersey emcee Talonted aims to become one of those few.  Bringing listeners along on a trip through his psyche, the emcee’s goal is find out if he Belong(s) Here. Producer Notty Beatz provides a background of rigid drum patterns and high-pitched synths that give Talonted a platform from which to tell his story. From the hood to law school, the emcee struggles with his identity: should he pursue his rap dreams, or, should he take the “straight path” that he knows will provide wealth, but is not where his passions lie? This confusing duality lies at the heart of all young people’s lives, but we, as listeners, can let Tal know that he’s made the right choice by purchasing his album, “7”, when it drops (though the release date is yet to be announced).
