Eschewing the cookie-cutter arrangements of New York-inspired drill sounds, Lil Lappy charts his own path with a dynamic and equally accessible piece of music that blends trap and stoner rock, emo, and a host of other exotic classical influences, Lil Lappy is the pioneer of his own genre, as he pushes the envelope and genre boundaries to come up with a sound that he is happy to call his own. Armed with his distinct vocals, which turn on a dime from sugary to snarling and are replete with masterful and provocative rhymes, this superstar exudes the type of confidence that can only be earned.
Spiked with style, soul, and spirit, his latest project, “A Long Way Home” sees Lil Lappy skyrocket from just a mixtape phenom to a literal rock star with a unique combination of ferocity and humor, flaunting razor-sharp wordplay, mercilessly blunt lyricism; consistently progresses with clarity and without compromise from one track to the next.
With this project, he embraces his poise, passion, and power like never before and takes the listener on a near cathartic listening experience that is visceral and unforgettable.
“A Long Way Home” feels like the project to cap off Lil Lappy’s whirlwind breakthrough era, with the artist spitting raw and aggressive rhymes in the tradition of Lil Yatchy, Lil Uzi Vert and Juice WRLD with subtle nuances of XXX Tentacion.
“LOUD”, featuring guest artists RASHID and DARKSHARK, offers a trippy and transportive experience with its intoxicating blend of rhythm and melody and a self-assured delivery guaranteed to remain in your head even after the song is no more. The production is a seamless fit, with the haunting vocal delivery transporting listeners to another realm.
“In “Family Ties”, Lil Lappy bares his soul in an honest, vulnerable, and emotional way. Through his soul-reaching performance, he hopes that anyone battling similar emotional storms might be able to find comfort in this delivery. This track is dark and melancholic, and the conversational, raspy, and growling tones at some point add edginess and depth to the song. This performance draws inspiration from struggles with depression and unseen personal battles.
“Saturday” exudes a feel-good type of atmosphere, with the big sawtooth bass, domineering 808s, and drums creating a banging sound as Lil Lappy’s voice oscillates and pirouettes through the soundscape with an irresistible allure. There is a seeming love balladry to the composition.
“2003” features an exciting blend of hi-hats, snares, synths, and drums over a powerfully laid-back, nostalgic production that is reminiscent of old-school hip hop. Lil Lappy breathes life with smooth and dexterous flows.
This substantial project marks a next-level progression for Lil Lappy and is poised to elevate him to international acclaim.
