AUDIO: Lakeyah – “In Due Time”
2020 was a massive year for QC hip hop artist Lakeyah, and now she’s just dropped her sophomore album. Kicking things off with a freestyle of flexes about overcoming all odds, Lakeyah gets right to it. She raps about the pressure the industry puts on emerging artists like herself, how naturally it comes to her to make hit songs, recognizing her worth in a relationship, and being sexually liberated despite dealing with lying men. She’s after the bag and has no time for anyone who isn’t serious about the game like she is, although she’s making time to have fun with it. Gucci Mane features on “Poppin” while Yung Bleu appears on “Perfect,” which just goes to she’s made profound traction. With this project, Lakeyah reminds the world she’s only going up, even though she’s got vulnerabilities to acknowledge along the way.
