Multi-talented R&B artist LoVel follows up his successful, recently released ‘Backseat Memories‘ EP with “Mike Tyson”, a moody burner that’s sure to make an accommodating addition to your year end playlist.
The track’s hook sets the tone for the quick listen, as the Harlem resident sings:
“But when I hit them with that right hook and that uppercut / I’m Mike Tyson in this bitch, sho‘nuff.”
In the hands of, say, a bruising MC, those words would be taken literally as a physical threat. And even though LoVel’s dishing out the same bravado here, he’s also making a point about his artistry. He’s also reminding listeners that, yeah, he dropped a project this past September, but he’s “always workin’ on somethin’“, be it on his own or as part of the Hittas with Lee Al-Taquan.
