With “The Mentality,” Boston’s Latrell James releases new material for the first time since dropping his well-recieved Twelve project. Time management is important, no matter what you do, and the rapper/producer utilized his time wisely over the last half year. Despite not releasing any new tunes for fans to enjoy, James focused on his live performance game and hit stages at various venues and colleges throughout the Northeast. In addition, he racked up noteworthy production placements for Lil Dicky, Cousin Stizz, Pslam One, and Khary, who all called on him for their respective projects and singles.
While James will continue to perform and produce for your favorite artists in 2016, look for him to focus on creating and releasing new music in the upcoming year. “The Mentality” is the first taste of that. It’s a melodic cut that features him teaming up with his brother Tedd Boyd for hypnotizing production.
He uses the favorable backing to put the money first, crooning “I rather have no friends than be broke” and then continues “When that money dialing in, I should go.” On the catchy hook and throughout the verses, he experiments with melodies en route to releasing one of one his tracks with the most replay value. While it’s not attached to any body of work, “The Mentality” is a strong offering that will carry him into the new year strong.
Listen to “The Mentality” below and stay tuned for new music from James in the new year.
