Things done changed. And Latrell James is seeing it all.
The rapper/producer digs into the changing landscape of his hometown on his newest song “Tracphone”. Only James could take such a serious subject and provide such a serious bop.
James explained to Wonderland Magazine to thought process around the track.
“‘Tracphone’ to me is when you no longer feel like you belong in a place where you grew up. It’s those lone footprints in the snow. Gentrification takes a toll on communities of colour and I wanted make light of that while also highlighting other important issues that affect us too. ‘Tracphone’ is more of a metaphor for wanting to hold onto things that are ‘old’ vs the new, and overall being proud of who you are and where you come from.”
