Many of Emilio Rojas’ most powerful cuts deal with the hardship he endured growing up as the poor, racially-mixed child of an absent father, and the emotional scars he still bears as a result. On new single Give the World to You, the Rochester, N.Y. repper returns to those familiar themes, but instead of going the mic-therapy route, he emphasizes the silver lining to his struggles. Over Australian producer M-Phazes’ sweeping, rock-infused boardwork, Rojas rejoices in rising above his difficult circumstances and proving his doubters wrong, resolving to use his talents to build a better life for his mom, sisters and nieces. Dave Schuler delivers a soaring guest chorus, and director Court Dunn provides a heartwarming visual complement to the emcee’s verses. Released in June, No Shame…No Regrets is available now for streaming, free download and digital purchase in the Booth.
