RGM RATING (⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️)
A mesmerizing hip-hop single with a thought-provoking reflection.
Midwest native, Zay Lewis, is a rapper and producer with deep NYC roots. His captivating work reflects his special connection to two regions with soulful delivery and stylish production. After moving around many times as a child, he began his rap career at 17 years old. Additionally, Lewis decided to step up his game by learning how to produce soon after. As a result of moving, he never fails to make his listeners feel at home with any of his hits on Spotify or his pictures on Instagram. Similarly, his website is just as welcoming. Since starting this journey, Lewis has opened for well-known artists like A$AP Ferg and Kelela. Lewis’s latest drop is the hip-hop single “MCH.”
Accompanied by a mellow, yet uplifting backdrop, Lewis gets personal. He thoughtfully reflects on the never-ending grind to obtain the finer things in life, fighting against life’s struggles along the way. Lyrics like “Time is money, man I hate that line cause I can get more money, I can’t get more time” and “Black kid white school dyslexic, at the top of my class still flexin‘” explore the personal struggles of trying to come up. It’s clear Lewis has been dealing with hardships and generalizations that create roadblocks for a while. So, if you relate to the challenges, you won’t want to miss out on this latest offering. Hit play and experience the internal introspective of Zay Lewis’s “MCH.”
