Los Angeles hip hop artist Success is beyond pumped to share his Black Balled EP today, February 9th. The seven track EP is the long awaited brainchild of the mysterious rapper known for his introspective rhymes and melodic synthesizers. Enjoy this audio stream below after the jump.
Black Balled is a swift left turn from Success’ previous image. After releasing You’re Welcome in 2013, Success took time to focus on songwriting and establishing himself in the Los Angeles music scene, resulting in a completely reconstructed image. Success has opted to re-enter the spotlight under different circumstances – he’s all art, no image. Keeping his face completely hidden from the spotlight, he focused on bettering his self-aware lyrics and self produced, surreal beats.
Having gone through the throes of the music industry, Success emerged on the other side with unwavering morals, principles, and values. No amount of money or fame is going to compromise his integrity and sanity, and he makes that clear throughout his album. Tracks like “Immortal Icons” and “Gang Activity (Virgin Mary Pt 2)” give us a confident autobiographical depiction of Success’ steadfast mindset. Stylistically, Success produces an upbeat psychedelic base for his words to flawlessly take off from, with melodic strings and vocal samples that elevate you to the rapper’s level. Throughout the album we get a real look into his new found sound and new found self.
After the release of Black Balled, Success will be revealing the first music video off the EP for “Prince of America,” a track about his own personal triumphs. Expect to see some dope visuals, shots of LA, and the back of his head. Keep a lookout for the “Prince of America” music video and be sure to keep all eyes on Success.
