Heems is still keeping on three years after Das Racist's break up. He announced that he's working on a new album Eat, Pray, Thug. That's supposed to drop on March 10, but for now, you can put the album's first single "Sometimes" on repeat. Heems spoke about the Gordon Voidwell-produced jam in a statement:
"'Sometimes""is about dualities, identity and the space between spaces," he said. "Like so many other people, as a first generation South Asian in the U.S. I often felt like I lived two lives, an Indian one and an American one. I lived, at once, in and between two spaces and outside them as well. On another level, I also often felt like in America I lived in the space between black and white. Dualities are normal though. As fun as rap is, I can't always feel happy. Sometimes I feel sad too. It also pays homage to hip-hop before me with cadences referencing both Nice and Smooth and Busta Rhymes."
The concept is the fulcrum of an instantly enjoyable track. Listen above.
