Fresh off dazzling Boothgoers with video single Don’t Shine, Emerald City fast-riser Raz Simone makes his return to our pages with another fresh cut off his next street album. Here, the 300 signee forgoes the first-mentioned jam’s sweeping, cinematic vibes to offer a more gritty, down-to-earth perspective on his hustle. After an opening verse in which he revisits his experiences on the block, he snaps back to the present to address his ambitions in the music game. The instrumental, produced by the artist in conjunction with Jack Crocker, subtly shifts gears to match the lyrical mood. Ariana DeBoo lends her vocals to the hook. An official video, co-directed by Raz Simone and Andrew Imanaka, rounds out the package. Cognitive Dissonance: Part 1 currently lacks a drop date, but we’ll keep you supplied with the latest news and tunes leading up to its eventual release.
