“I” may be the most important letter in Blame One‘s alphabet, but listeners shouldn’t get it twisted. Unlike a great many of his peers in the rap game, the San Diego rhymesayer’s looking out for much more than himself. On the lead single off his forthcoming EP, Blame outlines a life philosophy that’s self-motivated, but far from self-centered—and certainly not self-satisfied. Over project collaborator Preed One chopped-sample production, centered around a soulful rendition of the titular pronoun, he spits about his dedication to his craft, concern for his children’s futures, and the importance of recognizing that there’s more to life than wealth. Fresh, head-noddable and lyrically on-point, I is but one of many quality cuts slated for inclusion on Blame Preed. Keep it locked for release details on the EP, as well as the latest on Blame’s currently-untitled street album with Brown Bag All-Stars beatsmith J57.
