While many were anticipating the release of Kendrick Lamar’s newest album, Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers. On this Friday the 13th. Another highly-anticipated release that may have gone under some people’s radar. Is Elcamino with his new album, Let There Be Light.
A new 13-track effort from the Buffalo emcee. That features previously released singles, Better Than Love feat. Curren$y and Angels. There is just features from Curren$y and Keisha Plum. But an array of producers. That ranges from frequent collaborator, ILL Tone Beats to STREETRUNNER, Elijah Think A Lot, Toney Boi, Jon Glass, Imminent, Enrique, and Just Dre.
To coincide with the release of the new album. Elcamino also debuted the new Zach Warren-directed video for his newest single, Deep. That is just a simple video of the Buffalo emcee around his block with his grandfather and some of his homies. As over the melancholy production. Elcamino raps his very personal verses about his relationship with his grandmother he lost. Updating her on how him and his family have been doing since she passed. It’s easily among the most personal and emotional songs you may ever hear someone rap. That makes it one of the best Hip-Hop/Rap songs released so far this year too.
