Is that Lamel or ‘94 Nas?
Half the artists nowadays will sell they soul for just a crumpet
The voice may resemble a young Nas, but Lamel is an artist who stands on his own two feet. And If I could, I would put nothing but fire emojis on this review. Pocket a Dream has so many bars in it, I couldn’t keep count. He goes to great lengths to let us know, we don’t have to sell out for a quick dollar. The struggle to become great is beautiful and shouldn’t be taken for granted. It is true, you can’t pocket a dream and what you do with that dream is up to you.
Lamel touches on the lack of financial knowledge within our community also. We all don’t come from a background that was built on wealth. New money is foreign to us and sometimes we do what we see daily. Even though the knowledge was never taught to us, it’s our responsibility to find that information so we can be educated on saving our money and investing.
He’s firm on his beliefs and staying true to who he is. While he questions the intentions of other artists, he realizes that it’s their choice at the end of the day. Lamel shows the lyrical prowess that has been missing recently with this composition. I’m excited about his growth and you can stream this song as well as in his new album, Rookie Of the Year.
