Over the last year or two, Las Vegas lyricist Leanin’ Lo has been carving a lane for himself amongst the West Coasts’ crowded hip-hop scene. After endearing himself to fans with his consistent work ethic behind efforts like Vegas Vacation and 4 The Low, he has parlayed collaborations with artists like Bluebucks Clan, LAZR, Garren and more into a fan-base of his own. Looking to double down on his success, he returns to our pages with his highly anticipated new full length, Broken Promises.
Boasting 8-tracks, Broken Promises is the next evolutionary step, sonically, for the Eastside Las Vegas native. Known more upbeat, high-tempo records that revolve around getting money and usually place importance on the featured artist, he spends most of the 17-minute run-time showcasing how he’s developed his own sound. Almost immediately, the project provides one of it’s standouts in the form of the intro, “Late Night Musashi.” Paying homage to a classic late night local eatery, he paints a picture that many Las Vegas natives can relate to, telling a story about ending a fun night with his woman at the restaurant while keeping things lyrically engaging.
Other standouts on the project include, “Man Down,” the Lil’ Pole assisted banger that is in line with what fans have come to know from Lo, “Paid in Full,” one of the few feature-less songs that give him some time to vent and, “Contagious.” Serving as the lead single for the project, the song features Lo going back and forth with Spank Rokk and TheyCallMeYak over incredible production from OnMyWayve, a frequent collaborator with Lo.
