Since Graduation Music’s beginnings as a website, when I first jumped into the world of Massachusetts rap, Latrell James has always been a standout name to me. His confident stature within the scene comes with an abundant supply of both respect and wisdom, and with that, it only follows that he has remained one of the city’s most prominent and revered musicians while on a recent hiatus. Today, however, Latrell is ready to break the silence with a new single titled “Okay” that will surely remind us all of why we fell in love with his music in the first place.
Laying down the three ground rules that he follows right in the song’s opening lines, “Okay” immediately takes shape as a track of introspection for the Boston artist. He translates recent struggles into memorable lyricism, and by lacing this with compelling production from Billy Loman, you can’t help but resonate with Latrell in all of his trials and tribulations. This single is a well-executed return for an artist destined to take back over in 2018, so be sure to pay attention and watch out for new music from Latrell James hopefully soon.
