Tarik is a complicated guy—so complicated that it takes (at least) three songs to present a thorough portrait of the Brooklyn buzzmaker. Though we’re picking up the thread in the middle of the series with Everything I Am 3, no prior knowledge is required to enjoy the cut, single numero dos off the Golden auteur’s next full-length. Over Jerz & The Fatman‘s lush soul samples, Tarik contrasts two sides of his personality: the hungry emcee who will stop at nothing to conquer the game, and the inner hater who does everything in his power to hinder him. Fortunately, the former is powerful enough to keep the latter in check. Complete with official visuals by Hunter Lyon, Everything I Am 3 is one of many fresh, lyrically-driven jams to be found on the artist’s Here to Stay LP, set to drop independently September 22.
