Lyriciss - They Told Me

  • Artist: Rob Regal
  • Track: They Told Me
  • Producer: G-Way
  • Album: Voice Of The Metro

My road to DJBooth.net superstardom wasn't an easy one. Though nobody believed I could make it in the cold and unforgiving world of track reviews, I always knew I had something special, and, after countless hours spent copyediting and transcribing interviews, I can finally say I've made it to the big leagues—take that, haters! Well, okay, that wasn't exactly how it went down; I was just so inspired by Booth newcomer Lyriciss' underdog success story that I decided to try writing my own. From now on, I think I'll leave that to the pros; as it turns out, They Told Me is a hard act to follow. The newly-released mixtape track finds the East Coast up-and-comer flowing over an exultant, brass-driven instrumental by G-Way, describing how quickly his doubters changed their tune when it became clear he was destined for success. While the triumphant tale of underground rhymesayer-turned-champion is a theme as old as rap itself, Lyriciss' outsized braggadocio and vivid lyrical imagery make this cut a winner. Listeners who want to experience the next chapter in this rising star's journey to the top should be sure and pick up a copy of his latest mixtape, Voice of the Metro, when it drops August 5th.
