EDITORS’ NOTES

On his second full-length we find 19 year-old Raury Tullis an impassioned and vexed hip-hop/soul/folk prodigy. Sung and rapped lyrics on irresponsible friends and lovers, modern consumerism and poverty enflame an outstanding album that blazes through his almost showy arsenal. But Raury’s scrappiness keeps things authentic. The frantic “Revolution” crunches with intent, “Trap Tears” flits outrageously between gorgeous, earnest acoustic verses and a low-slung crunk chorus and even the lighter moments (“Mama”, “Friends”) have a Woodstock earthiness.

Love the + energy radiating from my speakers🔊

I'm so hyped for Raury's album to drop! His music is a breath of fresh air. To his style/lyrics/music he seems to be a man who has a vision & direction in which he's moving. It's so refreshing to see someone of color not be pigeonholed in doing what the media portrays us as being. We are more than one type of colored ppl in this world. We do wish better for ourselves, community & the world.

Just watched his performance of "Devil's Whisper" on the Late Show. I'm so excited to hear more!

Great!

Wasn't too hyped bout the last project but I feel like this album is great. Makes me wonder what kind of crazy progression we will see with his next project. Keep it up!
