Rapper and songwriter LijahT is serving up a strong side of realness on his newest release. Titled “Rut” the Oakland, California, rapper is taking his original sound to new heights in a sonically pleasing manner. Featured on “Rut” is fellow rising emcee Ronntheartist, who does a great job of adding bars that align directly with LijahT’s cadence and lyrical prowess.
Heavily inspired by the likes of SOS Band, Bill Withers, Bob Marley, Tupac, Snoop Dogg, E-40, Souls Of Mischief and DJ Quik, he is preparing to join the ranks of some of the greatest to ever do music. His west coast and R&B influence is the reason why he has such a unique sound and gifted pen game.
On “Rut” you will hear LijahT flowing about the dangers of being stuck in a “rut” and all the misfortune that comes along with it. Life is all about choices and this rapper is choosing to turn his circumstances into musical bliss for the world to hear and dive into. From beginning to end, you will hear Lijah speaking his truth followed by the impressive flows of Ronntheartist. The melodically, serene, beat makes it easier for both rappers to rise to the occasion on each verse as they compliment each other like peanut butter and jelly. This release is the perfect depiction of LijahT’s raw creativity and starlike qualities.
