The last featured single off Hi-Rez’ most recent street album found the 18-year-old Fort Lauderdale native in a Race With Time, utterly consumed by his desire to make it in the music game. As it turns out, though, his problem isn’t simply the lack of hours in a day—it also has to do with the ever-expanding scale of his ambitions. On the newly-released Never Enough, a moody Joel Johnston production backs the emcee as he reflects on what he hopes to accomplish with this rap sh*t, both for his own sake and that of his family. Make It Work rhymesayer Kinetics guests, providing a sung hook (Anyone else reminded of Forever?) as well as an emotionally-charged middle verse. Ben Foley directs the accompanying visuals. Released late last year, Hi-Rez’ Lost Time tape is available now for free digital download.
