mynameisntjmack has been a name I’ve been aware of for quite some time. I came across him through a variety of Discord servers, immediately drawn to his laid back rapping style. He has built a very strong start to his career through Discord, even resulting in a distribution deal with Genius. Now, in anticipation for his album releasing May 20, The Lord Of Sounds And Lesser Things, mynameisntjmack is back with “NEWBRASSKNUCKLES.”
A piano lead instrumental lays the perfect groundwork for mynameisntjmack’s vocals to shine, smoothly flowing across the entire track, kicked off with a fast-paced rhyme scheme. Throughout the track, mynameisntjmack takes us into his life as he navigates the world around him. “This song, and the album as a whole, are embodiments of my surroundings, which I often fall victim to,” he said on the meaning. “NEWBRASSKNUCKLES is the feeling of action. For better or for worse, it is both the physical and mental response to the way in which I perceive my reality.” This is highlighted on the hook, taking on a slightly different delivery, while subtle vocal effects add a new element.
mynameisntjmack is continuing to climb and cement himself as one of the best rising artists right now, and with an album on the way, it won’t be long until he’s blown past that title altogether. Listen to his new single below:
