Levi Hinson’s “EGGSHELLS” is a brutally honest track, one in which the rapper talks about his inner demons and his vices. This is all while he lyrically tears the sample-heavy production a new one. One thing about this track is that it made me want to check out more from the Oklahoma-based artist. Why? Well, simply put, it’s two minutes of hard-hitting reflective lyricism over a soul beat. What else could you want?
As someone who’s battled some inner demons of my own, I learned that you can’t really walk on eggshells with your own sanity and health. If you hold things in or hold them off, personal experience says you’re damning yourself to a hellish existence. Thankfully for Hinson, he sees things the same way. Even as he’s dabbled with drugs and a bit of suicidal ideation and/or fears of dying young, he realizes that his life is more than a sum of a few parts of it. That’s what grabbed me the most about “EGGSHELLS.”
