Personally, one of my favorite parts of Hip-Hop are rollouts. Call me a nerd, geek or whatever, but I love watching artists come up with wildly creative schemes to promote their album’s release authentically. Despite being independent, Las Vegas native Teej handled the release of his debut album, Spotlight as if it were a major release, using billboards, city-wide kickball games & of course fullproof singles to promote it’s release & despite all of the hype, it did not disappoint.
Clocking in at a solid 12 tracks, Spotlight is a melodically driven, self reflective project that brings all of Teej’s intangible qualities together that drive his success. Songs like, “Japan” & the Chop 808 assisted, “Swing on By” are sure-fire hits while tracks like, “Down For It” showcase his strong flow & surprisingly good voice.
Being a fan of Teej’s since the 2017 release of, “Spotlight” — which serves as a perfectly placed intro to brings the listener to nostalgia — it’s encouraging to see his development into somebody who can depend on his songwriting to carry the weight of a song as opposed to resorting to the old melodic pop tricks.
With the album already reaching numbers on the streaming services, I suggest you get familiar with Teej sooner rather than later. Listen below.
