pell2The freshest sound to come out of New Orleans, emcinger (emcee/singer) Pell displays his marked vision for hip-hip on his new track, Vacation. And yes he needs one for a whole entire week. After relocating to Mississippi due to Hurricane Katrina, over the past few years Pell has mastered surfacing his own direction as an hip-hop artist. Pell has shown his ability to be a rapper from the southern hemisphere that is lyrically inclusive. On his debut album, Floating While Dreaming Pell gave fans a zing of his lucid, preparatory vibe, embracing the growth of dream rap.

Pell has surely come a long way to get to this height of his rap career, and according to him a well deserved vacation is due. He lays down the blueprint for aspiring rappers on his newly released record, Vacation. With the complex use of a soul sample, the airy beat and quality production, Pell spits with jive and rhythm about how it feels to finally be at the height of your career after months of grinding.

“I’ve been grindin’ all year, imma need a whole week.”

With a Drake style flow, the New Orleans rapper goes on to pride himself about his accomplishments and illustrates his experience with groupies and now upscale lifestyle, like V.I.P. treatments at the club from thirsty producers. His confidence about success is at large, as the dandy guitar samples flow and piano twists add on to Pell’s one of a kind artistry swagger.

“Always been a fan of action, not a fan of practice.”

Pell seems to have a formula for bringing back pure lyricism to the Southern culture. He embraces the new school sound and tends to have a sense of old school tactics. As he tours around the country with You Should Be Here singer Kehlani, Pell abides by his word and continues his grind. This summer bound banger seems to be a taste of what Pell fans should expect on his sophomore album which is said to drop this fall.
