Mayo‘s last few DJBooth features found him preoccupied with his love life, whether that meant losing himself in Memories of an ex or trying to get with a shawty at the local spot. The Chi-Town repper’s latest promo single, Tell Me, by contrast, finds him contemplating his career. Backed by Tommy Jacob‘s pensive guitar/synth boardwork, the 19-year-old rhymesayer chronicles his struggle to turn his dreams into reality, while avoiding the many pitfalls of the music game: “Industry full of traps; I won’t fall for it / Fake smiles and handshakes but no, it’s not cordial.” For more, check out Jacob’s Last EP, which the beatsmith claims will be his final musical project.
