Sonorous amounts of soul within Trap music may be hard to find. But Oakland-based Hip Hop artist 4amcollective made up for the shortfall with their standout 2019 hit “you said…”.
The lyrics deliver a captivatingly potent serving of humble romantic confusion. As the hauntingly downtempo reverb-laden beats lead the way through the mix, 4amcollective verses thoughts which may be all too familiar. If you’ve had the displeasure of dating in the 21st century, you’ll definitely be able to find the resonance in the simplistic candidacy of the single.
4amcollective’s soul was as much of a part of the soundscape as the lucid wavy trap beats, which may be light in tone and texture, but it’s still a track which hits incredibly hard.
