Making his Graduation Music debut is rapper/producer, Ronny Llama, who recently graced listeners with his first official project, Give It a Year. The project was Llamas second release of 2018, following his first single titled, “Hueman”.
The Dorchester native is no stranger to the Boston scene, and his project even starts with a promise to put on for the city. Give It a Year sits at 9 tracks — with each being full of pure introspection, lyricism and a proper amount of humor. Llama mixes his lyrical prowess with nostalgic and eery beats throughout, which assist in making even the most emotionless listener feel deeply. From “Ñac Ñac”, where his production and humming is reminiscent of a young Kid Cudi, to “Days I Think of You”, where a heartbroken lover leaves a chilling voicemail — Llama captivates listeners and leaves us wanting more.
In the two months following the release of the project, Llama has dropped three singles, “What I Do”, “Passive Aggressive”, and “Goodbye”, which collectively make it known that this isn’t the artist to sleep on. His 2019 has been incredibly bright up through this point in time, and we look forward to hearing more from Ronny Llama as he continues his journey towards success.
