The power of music is unparalleled. Possessing the ability to evoke emotions and carry profound messages, it really is a force to be reckoned with. And, Leitroleion Troleone’s “Little Ghetto Boi’s” proves this. A cut reminiscent of the intoxicating sounds of 90s hip-hop, a bold-yet-melodic tone prevails as we are treated to a slice of soul-piercing mastery, delivered and produced by the talent. And, while the tune itself is one sure to capture your attention thanks to its incomprable sound, the track’s deeply moving messaging is what allows it to situate itself as one of the best to drop this week.
Taking a hard look at the world around him, the artist has used this track as a means to communicate a message best summed up by when he expresses, ‘‘Despite the modern means of communication and technology, the streets seem to be more violent than ever and kids have less respect’’. Hoping to inspire the youth around him, Troleone raps out a call to action here in which he hopes to encourage the young people of today to choose a path of love, tolerance and peace. And, if the words themselves don’t manage to resonate with you, a raw and profound animated music video filled with harrowing symbolism is sure to do the trick.
Proving that music is both a form of art and a vessel for social commentary, Troleone situates himself amongst his idols such as Nipsey Hussle and Drake as a master of lyrical flows and as a provider of narratives sure to have you spiralling into a session of deep, much-needed thought.
