Inglewood, California-based rapper Lamel (also the founder of the the music collective 99Percenters) is an artist on a mission. Establishing himself as a lyrical force within the underground scene, the artist continues to expand his scope.
His latest release “True Story” is an exhibition of his skillset. However, the inspiration behind the song was the need to appreciate mothers and the sacrifices they make for the benefit of their loved ones. Drawing on his personal journey, Lamel raps introspectively over a poignant and jazzy-influenced hip hop beat.
“True Story” is a powerful piece worth listening to.
