“Trunks” from Ike Is The Rap We Had Already Lost Our Hope To Hear

When an artist is inspired from legends like Lil Wayne, J. Cole, Drake, Young Thug, Future, Kendrick Lamar, Jhene Aiko, SZA, Smino, EARTHGANG, and many more, his music has no chance to be trash, but it is not insured to be a masterpiece either. Ike, the new voice of real American rap, released his new track “Trunks” and music video to it. This new drop is leveling up the rap game with its close to OG appearance. 

With strong lyricism accompanied by full-on deep melodicism and a collection of heavy beats, “Trunks” shares a vibe unique to the genre. Ike changes his rapping manner, the moods, and the technique so many times in the song that you wonder how it happened to make sense after finishing the song. The artist blends all the different vibes and singing manners in a surprisingly flawless flow. With “Trunks,” he claims his own style and forces it to you unapologetically and with no fear of being judged. 

Ike’s deeply hitting heaviness of beats, poetically mature lyricism, and the floating atmosphere of sounds he creates and his powerfully shooting vocals build a strong sense of intimate grooviness, edginess, and sensually vibrant emotionality.

“Trunks” will remind you of what made you fall for rap in the first place. It hits really close to home for those of us who are not just on the hype but know the genre to the core.
