While some of SoloSam’s previous releases are head-bopping slappers, like ”HOTBOX” and “Fire,” the Chicago native comes different in his 2021 debut. “Traffic Jam” features articulate punches of rhythm encapsulated by carefree, melancholy melodies. This track gives off the feeling of cruising through a city street lined with lights, unhurried and unbothered. With a calm confidence, SoloSam sings,
"Paid my dues said fuck my debt I trust my bets,
Paper planes don’t fly like dreams they go like jets."
The lyric video for the track is equal parts vintage and nostalgic. Through the POV of a passenger side window, the viewer is taken through Chicago on iconic streets such as Lake Shore Drive. Simple yet polished, the video matches the song to a tee. The triple threat producer, songwriter, and rapper from the West Loop delivers a timeless track with “Traffic Jam,” supplying tranquil, easy vibes. Tap into SoloSam, and hit the video below.
