Chicago rapper Tyre Hakim showcases his lyricism on latest release, “Last Supper.” The track’s music video is set in a lavish mansion with the rapper accompanied by a beautiful woman. He delivers calculated bars on an immaculate staircase and extravagant backyard before sitting in a luxurious tub as the model bathes him.
“Last Supper” has a subtle jazz-infused hip-hop beat with a soothing harmonious melody. Hakim addresses his daily struggles and finds the motivation to keep going with a religious undertone. He raps, “I just pray to Allah when I’m swimmin in the bottom with them sharks in the water, I’m a whale so I’m swallowing, I’m God body Allah, And I’m silent when I gotta vision.” Each verse is thoughtful with an introspective essence. The beat is mellow and smooth, perfect for a late-night drive through the city.
The up-and-coming rapper has continued to garner traction and hopes to keep the Midwest rap scene on the map. Following in the footsteps of his parents, Hakim is using his musical background to land himself on hip-hop playlists. His use of storytelling and pensive verses sets him apart from the competition, making him a unique talent to watch.
