Put It Together: Luke Crimiel pleads for them to stop flashing and always hating on ‘Show Me’

With an annoyed attitude that has grown tiresome of their silly games, Luke Crimiel brushes off the pesky small-mindedness on the engrossing new single ‘Show Me‘.

Luke Crimiel is an absorbing Lafayette, Louisiana-born, Los Angeles, California-based indie pop singer-songwriter, music producer, skilled dancer, and respected multi-instrumentalist. He is an artist who sings from the heart and its clear that he isn’t afraid to show his emotions, so that he may help others who are perhaps feeling a bit down in life or love.

My family always had music on. It was a lifestyle. Happy times we play music, sad times we play music. I think it would have been impossible for me not to have been influenced by my musical family.” – Luke Crimiel

You feel his terrific vocals that shows his growing maturity, each note is sung with an enthralling grace that has you wondering who really got him so in depth within this track. The scene has been set and the intrigue is so intense, the beat takes your mind inside the inner workings, and this is such a fascinating listen.

Show Me‘ from the multi-skilled Los Angeles-based music producer and indie pop musician Luke Crimiel, is a wildly compelling track which has you thinking deeply about those people who seem to enjoy seeing you lose. You took it for a while on the chin, but are now making the move to end this, as its time to speak up.

Sometimes you need to say something for anything to change, otherwise you might sit back for years and keep on taking unnecessary punches.

Lil Leek – Who’s That? Baller Beats

Whilst this 2:11 track is wall to wall in tightly packed lyrics which feverishly flow, no sense followed, and the experience of this track left me thoroughly complexed. On the tenth time of listening to Who’s This? the latest track By Lil Leek, Aka Malik Glover a Hip Hop Rap artist from Lafayette, US I was still perplexed until I listened to his other tracks, and realised just how far Leek needs to come as a Hip Hop artist to be respected.

The sniggering, whooping, and other dubious noises that the artist makes is less than the perfect introduction to a track where you want to be taken seriously, let alone achieve his goal of being great in God’s eyes. Leek may want to refrain from the overly crass lyrics and actual convey some amiable emotion in his music, rather than stick with his current style.

His lyrical ability isn’t in question here, he’s got the talent hidden away under his baller misogynist attitude. The beat supporting his Rap flow is simplistic, and totally gets lost within the mix, the production is less than polished and seems tragically half-assed. There’s enough soulless music out there already. Let’s hope Lil Leek finds his way.
