Lil Baby knew what he was getting when he signed rapper Rylo Rodriguez. Rodriguez is an authentic vivid lyrical story teller, who’s words come straight from the soul. And although he’s from Alabama, he speaks on hood struggles universally. In the “Set Me Free” video, Rylo obviously wanted people to hear him. This isn’t a complex video at all. Rylo is sitting on a deck outside with a microphone, metaphorically breaking down the adversity he faced in the projects. He raps about heartbreak, betrayal, and the morals of the streets. Rylo is one of the new faces of hip hop who is talking about pain, but he’s deeper than the murder music that’s flooding the genre. Rylo raps over soul beats and no matter how successful he becomes, he still acts as the voice of the streets. Watch the “Set Me Free” video below.
