When REASON signed to Top Dawg Entertainment in 2018, his first release was the hard-hitting single “The Soul.” Over two years later, the TDE rhymer returns on his birthday (September 21) to deliver the candid sequel.
REASON has evidently heard the jokes and seen all of the memes about him being signed to Dreamville instead of TDE, as he jets into his anticipated There You Have It follow-up, New Beginnings.
“But this industry keep playin’ with a n-gga, I see y’all playin’/See jokes about South Africa REASON, now it seem real/See jokes about how I’m not really with Top and I’m with Dreamville/N-ggas pronounce my name wrong, tell me that I ain’t did much,” he raps.
The “Kurupt” rapper then takes a shot at Logic, who he essentially accuses of stealing from the Hip Hop culture. Logic recently hung up his mic and retired from the music game with his final album No Pressure.
“See y’all mistake my name for Logic’s, y’all got me fucked up,” he spits. “How you compare a n-gga that take from the culture/Versus a n-gga that’s for it,”
In a statement, he continues to describe the “The Soul – Pt. 2” as an “honest record about the headspace I’m in right now, as well as serves as a time capsule for the various headspaces I’ve found myself in over the last couple years.”
As fans continue to wait for releases from TDE running mates Kendrick Lamar and SZA, it looks like REASON now has the spotlight for the next Top Dawg rollout. New Beginnings is expected to arrive next month.
