Omaha Nebraska hip hop artist Loso Tha Artist is currently putting the final touches on his next project, “Equilibrium 3,” which will have production from Thomas Saddler in its entirety. To get fans excited, today he serves up a new single off the upcoming album titled “Behind You.“ Speaking on the single, Loso says: “Behind You” is a stream of pain and consciousness that addresses my everyday vexations. As an observer of the music game, I find the industry politics and exclusive nature of the Omaha scene a bit weird. I wanted to express who I am against the backdrop of these frustrations.”
I was working on some other music at the time but was feeling to get a few of these things off my chest, so I hit Thomas Saddler for something I could rap over… He sent a beat and the energy was perfect. I wrote the verses that night intended for a freestyle and then ended up adding the hook later.” Once again opting for a melodic soundscape, Loso delivers a piano-warped, 808-inspired banger, housing a syrupy vocal timbre and breezy flows. Despite its three-minute runtime, ‘Behind You’ is jam-packed with Loso’s signature charisma and thought provoking delivery.
Bringing the heat to the glass and concrete-bound city of Omaha, ‘Behind You’ couldn’t come at a better time as summer planning, antics and hot weather creep up on the horizon. Standing worlds apart from most artists out of the midwest, Loso Tha Artist aims to provide a multitude of soundtracks, sharp lyricism and pure musical escapism, which is aided by the accompanying visuals that he plans to release in the near future. The real progression, however, seems to be in the wind of the life story Loso is telling with his lyrics.
With a vocal style which conjures images of his own, the lyrics are real, pensive, declaratory in nature and follow the journey Loso Tha Artist has been on in his recent life. In fact, every time Loso releases music there’s at least one statement where he says exactly who he is and where he is in his life. In “Behind You,” the chorus is literally “If you say you riding wit me, I’m goin to war behind you (behind you, behind you), I never been these other n***as, dog that’s just what I do (what I do, what I do)”. Keeping thing’s solid is the way Loso has always played it and expects the same loyalty in return. He’s not only marking who he is, but where he’s standing. Such active language paints an instant picture for the listener and puts them in the speaker’s shoes. It’s effective, visceral and relatable. “Behind You” is currently available on all major streaming services and gives you an insight into the mind of Loso’s best-kept secret. Bar for bar, Hip-Hop street tales over hard-hitting production. Loso Tha Artist is definitely one of the top artists from Omaha Nebraska to keep on your radar for 2022. Get familiar!
