Like many, if not most of us, Locksmith has neither the petty cash nor the insurance coverage to work through his issues with a professional shrink. Unlike most of us, he’s got the skills to turn that baggage into beautiful music. On new single Bear With Me, the Cali repper picks up where he left off with late March’s Broken, stretching out on the proverbial couch to revisit his grief at the untimely death of his mother and further reflect on the difficulties of growing up racially mixed. Mike TopNoch provides a pensive piano-loop backdrop for the artist’s bars. Fans will be able to find Bear With Me and many more introspective bangers on free album The Green Box, dropping digitally on Tuesday, May 7.
