In this time of quarantine, we found ourselves in a relatively new, awkward world. 2020 has been a strange year for us all but in this bizarre era; I’ve located many new music artists that have touched my ear with the profound graces of their lyrics. Lyrically venting about the hardships that correlate with the teenage years, I stumbled upon this 19-year-old artist from Dallas, Texas that cued my excessive use of the repeat button. This artist sang about love, acceptance, maintaining distance from others for her protection, alongside the developed isolation that connects with music success in her ending teenage epoch.

This Detroit artist work ethic has been phenomenal within these past few years. We music listeners have been graced with two 2017 releases, “I Was Bullshittin’” EP and his second EP, “Bachelor Dad” that included respected samples, great lyrics, and amazing features. Providing a strong presence in 2020, this ten min EP gave an introspective view of the important aspects of the rapper’s life that focused on great mental health and self-care. Cam Woods blesses listeners with I.R.L.
