As he flows tremendously with street stories of back in the day with friends and how those sometimes fond and sometimes harsh memories are still close to his heart, Mista Lyrical shows us his quality skills on the excellent new single ‘Holden‘.
Jigg.E $upreme aka Mista Lyrical is a Durham, North Carolina-born, Greensboro, North Carolina-raised indie boom-bap rapper. He makes that stylishly crafted music that is full of storytelling, of the highest order.
His rapid rhythms and supremely harmonious melodies has your body grooving, as he webs around the bars to project a man that is on his way to where he wants to be in life, as an artist and as a self-aware man that wants the best for his family. He is willing to do things the right way, so he can look in the mirror with a smile and not gaze into hatred for what you have done.
This is the story about reflecting about past memories whilst looking to the future, as the road was hard and lots of sacrifices were needed. The time to rise up and do what is necessary to make that paper is here and he is ready.
‘Holden‘ from the determined North Carolina hip-hop artist Mista Lyrical, has that rare back-in-the-day feel, that warms your mind and has you turning the volume up, as you appreciate his top shelf lyrical delivery that sets him apart from most.
Life was tough growing up and through music and hard work, he shows that anything is possible if you put in the time and effort. When you feel like you are chosen to do what you love, each day is a blessing.
