TEC is one of those artists who knows how to make an inspirational song slap on a sonic level. On his latest track, “Why,” the Louisiana native raps with conviction about many of the struggles he’s seen throughout his life. Between almost being another statistic to the system, losing loved ones, dealing with depression and trying to be the best father he can possibly be, it’s all here, all laid out for listeners to digest.
Flow-wise, this one reminds me of a mix between Lil Baby and Wayne. He’s got the Autotuned vocals going, but he’s doing it in a way that matches the beat and allows for his voice to—as mentioned previously—become another instrument on the song. Plus, his bars are solid (the brother is spitting spitting on this one) and the beat is emotional enough where you want to hear just what exactly is TEC going to speak on. Check out the introspective visuals above and remember to support dope music in all its forms.
