Dreamy vocals and hefty bass-led production come across with openly thoughtful, emotional lyrics to kick off this notably intimate and immersive new single from Soulja Roo.
Soulja Roo is a versatile, up-and-coming artist from State Line, Mississippi. He recently relocated to Houston, Texas, to pursue his rap career. He began rapping in 2017, but he has always been a freestyler who primarily records Rap and Hip Hop. His creations have amassed a fan base of over 20,000 on YouTube. Soulja Roo’s favorite artist is Kevin Gates, and he hopes to sign with BWA.
Holding the longer set-up alive and vital, RAW entertains and keeps devotion throughout – not simply following the auto-tune melody-raps of the flash but showcasing an artist with a passion for creative expression and self-determination.
Trap rhythms and equally rhythmic vocals tie amidst the weight of the bass for a chain of hints that kick things off with confidence and simple love for the redundancy. While the RAW is a somewhat familiar anthem, the single mixes things up accordingly as it flows on.
Heavy bass, trap rhythms, and evocative synths make up the backdrop. In the meantime, the vocals have a touch of auto-tune but a crispy and upfront performance then.
The tone and delivery graces are clear, energetic, and different enough to hold things exciting. For what it intends to be within the scene, both significant and hard-hitting, the whole thing ticks many boxes.
Tipping its hat to the more superficial hits of eras past, musically speaking, RAW draws focus to a natural subject matter and voice through a finely uplifting piece of music that logically feels good to drip into. There’s depth to the writing, the delivery ties this with calm confidence, and the whole thing just pleads for you to listen more than a few times over.
