Memphis rapper Don Trip has dropped off a fresh live version of his song "Say Less". As a prolific emcee putting his own twist on classic Memphis hip-hop sounds, he first launched his career with a string of potent mixtapes like Guerilla before landing on the 2012 XXL Freshman list. Since, he has continued to expand his raw, emotive catalogue with the hallmark Step Brothers mixtape series with Starlito, as well as standout solo works. As part of the rollout for his latest album, Hell's Kitchen, the renowned rhymer returns with a live rendition of the album cut "Say Less". In fact, the standout single serves as a soul-seeking track that complements Trip’s trademarked style as he tells a paper chasing story. Don Trip tells the detractors to redirect their attention on why he only talks about money and keeps conversations with time wasters short and sweet.
"Say Less" is a poignant track laced with soulful, energizing production centred around glowing vocal samples and a bouncy, crisp rhythm section. Trip matches the raw, heartfelt feel of the instrumentation with honest, confessional verses injected with a hard dose of realism. His commanding delivery demonstrates his storied experience in the hip-hop game, while he delivers dexterous rhyme patterns that keep the listener on their toes throughout, anticipating each line.
Paired with a refreshing, engaging new live performance video, "Say Less" presents a highlight offering from his recent album Hell's Kitchen that demonstrates his personal, soul-laden take on Memphis rap.
