Norfolk, Va Hip-Hop artist TwanLite has been working on his new mixtape, “TLZ EP2: L.I.A.R.S.” since 2015, after dropping off his debut body of work. In a time like now where it seems as if those that are put in position to protect and serve are abusing their power to continue furthering generational hatred and racism, those with a voice have to make it a mission to speak out. Lite has made that his duty with his new body of work, having the artwork display a black boy slain in the middle of the street by a police officer.
The controversial cover art was meant to portray the sad reality of what has been happening to people of color since the beginning of time, and the project itself plays off of that notion as well. Titled as an acronym, “L.I.A.R.S.,” which means (Life Is About Revolving Successfully), the messages encrypted in the artwork and the music are explained throughout all 17 featured tracks.
“TLZ EP2: L.I.A.R.S.” is filled with life lessons. Coining himself as a “novelist,” TwanLite hopes to keep us woke with his new music. Tune in below.
