QuEST may not be as “Lost” as the gun-toting narrator of his last single, but the Jersey representative is well-acquainted with the struggle. On the freshly-minted Struggle Rapper, he offers a glimpse of the pain and stress lurking beneath his confident facade, and reminds us that talent isn’t sufficient to ensure success in the game. Joining QuEST over Wishlade and 6ix‘s tense, yet understated production, Booth-approved indie crooner Mélat provides ethereal backing vocals throughout. For this introspective jam and much more, cop Searching Sylvan when it drops independently in September.
