Thanks to an email from his manager, I was put on to Springfield rapper TaiChi yesterday, an interesting artist with an ear for smooth, often times jazzy instrumentals and soft vocals. His latest offering “Out Of Ya League” follows this very style, speaking on the way that Tai feels out of a certain girl’s league, asking her to catch up to him.
My favorite part of the track is definitely the way that the instrumental runs alongside the genuine emotion in the artist’s voice. With looming vocals and honest lyrics directed toward the former love interest at hand, “Out Of Ya League” shows listeners just how talented TaiChi is. He creates a beautiful atmosphere with the catchy bassline and full background vocals, and based on the other tracks he has out, this isn’t a rare occurrence – the Springfield native has some serious talent.
