Melodic rapper Jaalid seamlessly toggles between soft harmonies and rugged bars on latest release, “Lobby.” The track paints a picture of a laid-back fling with a beautiful woman in the Florida metropolis.
“Lobby” has a soulful hip-hop beat with delicate bass. The rapper’s verses are poised and clear with a lyrical enunciation similar to classic Drake. Soft vocals give the beat an atmospheric vibe equipped with a romantic undertone. Jaalid raps, “Miami for the weekend, never creepin’, politicin on the low / Witcha bad self I just want you to myself.” His voice hovers over each clap within the melody. He possesses a shy yet confident swagger as he transitions into his sharp verses.
"This song comes from one of many trips in Miami," Jaalid describes. "I always get a lot of inspiration from the late night scene there. I tapped in with Scotty Valid from Atlanta to create an atmosphere of meeting a woman you’re invested in and putting everything aside to get to spend time with her." With his genre-bending sound, he is the poster child for modern contemporary rap. Jaalid is an emerging artist to watch with a unique versatility for both alternative hip-hop and R&B.
