As someone who has always been a fan of melodic rap, I can’t help but be drawn to this style with beats that focus on melodies rather than rhythm. Growing up on acts such as Arrested Development, Mos Def, and, of course, Nate Dogg, my appreciation for this style came at a pretty early age. Nostalgia is one of the most powerful drugs, and when I hear artists such as Jehry Robinson’s latest track, “Razor,” it gives me a perfect dose of the excitement of finding a new discovery while harkening back to some of the glory days of the genre I grew up loving.
“Razor” creates a carefree ambiance that fills you with uplifting and joyful energy, instantly captivating your attention. While it’s difficult to identify all the fine details of what drew me to this track, its harmonious composition and excellent execution unquestionably make it a valuable addition to the playlist of any music aficionado. So check it out, and add it to your playlist as it’s now out today via Strange Music.
Jehry Robinson’s ability to effortlessly fuse melodic elements with his unique style speaks volumes about his talent and versatility. As a fan of his previous releases, I’ve been consistently impressed by his aptitude as a lyricist and songwriter.
I have a deep appreciation for analyzing song lyrics and uncovering their intended meanings or interpreting them from my own perspective. It’s always fun to take a journey and delve into artistic expression and explore the possibilities of personal connection and interpretation, especially when it comes to great songwriting. Sometimes I feel like I like to be a little lost.
To me, “Razor” seems to be an introspective and reflective song that touches on various themes such as self-reflection, personal struggles, friendship, and the unpredictability of life. The lyrics express a sense of disillusionment and frustration with the world, urging you not to let external influences extinguish your inner flame.
The opening lines convey a sense of acceptance of the cyclical nature of life. The repetition of “when it stops, it starts again” to me feels that despite any and all efforts to break free from patterns or negative cycles, they inevitably recur. The lyrics emphasize the importance of personal accountability.
Friendships and relationships can be complicated, and a lot of things often go unsaid. On the track, there is a sense of discontentment with a friend as Jehry says that he is not proud to call this person a friend. The mention of tying up loose ends and making amends implies that there may have been some unresolved issues or conflicts in the relationship.
In the last verse, Jehry gets personal and opens up about their own experiences and growth. Jehry goes on about coming up from the trenches and fighting his inner demons, which shows how he has overcome tough times. It seems like his creative pursuits, like making beats and writing lines, have been a way for him to channel his struggles. And of course, these are themes that make fantastic songwriting material.
“Razor” is a celebration of perseverance and personal growth, all wrapped up in a melodic rap package. With Jehry Robinson’s full LP on the horizon, I’m eagerly awaiting the chance to delve further into what he has to offer.
