Rising artist Tymain Robbins out of Bolton, NC is not your ordinary rapper, he’s a story-teller. The NC native who’s influences range from Jay-Z and Nas to Kendrick Lamar and Drake, doesn’t just want to make his listeners bop to his music, he wants to leave them feeling connected.
From his viral freestyles to his singles like “6PM in North Carolina” and “Down & Out“, it ain’t hard to tell that he’s going places. Recently the 21 year-old rapper released his 12-track EP entitled Don’t Trip, There’s More 4 U. According to the rising artist, this project places a focus around overcoming temporary stresses that have turned into our life’s obstacles. The rapper’s message is clear: Why allow momentary stress to take over our lives when God has so much planned for us? Don’t trip, God has something up his sleeve. With the content alone, this project definitely weighs heavy. Tymain’s Don’t Trip, There’s More 4 U is now available via Apple Music, Spotify (below) and YouTube. Peep the EP below and let us know what you think !
