Press play and enjoy.
You can’t get anywhere without energy and motivation, and this 9-track album Soul Rock released by New Jersey’s Dre Breezy is full of it. At 9 tracks and 29 minutes in length, it’s a concise yet jam-packed collection of cuts displaying strong potential in creative lyricism and melodies.
The album, featuring Suave, Marley Q, and Blvd Mott, is a confident assertion of his place in music currently and where he sees himself down the road. Primarily in the trap lane sonically, he attacks beats ferociously with an emphasis on addressing more than the typical rap content today. The sound is appealing, but the message is important. Tracks like “3 AM” and “Smoke” are a bit more turned down, but the effort does not falter in trying a different approach.
When you know his story, you completely understand the authenticity of the music. Back in 2016, the rapper was involved in a nearly fatal car accident after crashing into a gas pump. He and those in the car survived, but he had to endure months of therapy and severe depression after the loss of his best friend afterward. He found he was able to cope through the music, and pushed onward.
Dre Breezy is a member of the O Gang, and has intentions on releasing the follow up to this album sooner than you think. It’s refreshing to see a younger artist prioritize authenticity and lyricism, and we look forward to his continued growth and efforts to put Jersey on the map. Check out Soul Rock below.
