Taigenz has released a new track Lemme Ball. The Montreal artist created something to lift you up and get you on your grind. He skillfully glides on the slow moving track with affirmations of success and wealth. He doesn’t want it all for himself. He wants his team to win as well.
Alexis Renee hits the track with superb rhymes, enforcing the hustle and grind mentality.
Production came from Melowithdaheat.
I had a chance to talk to Taigenz about the track:
DJ Sub-T: What does the track mean to you? What is it about?
Taigenz: This track means a lot to me. All the way from how I came up with the idea to the final steps of recording. Not only is this my first collaboration with an artist from another market, it’s also one of my favorite songs from my album. It’s a hopeful trap ballad for the ones who didn’t have much to work with and yet are still making ways for themselves to live out their dreams.
DJ Sub-T: Tell me about the creation of the track. How did you connect with Alexis Renee?
Taigenz: The song came about when I was in the car with Melo (the producer of the song) after doing my hair at the salon (we both got Dreads so we gotta maintain you know lol shout out to Kyky).
He was playing beats off his phone and when this one came up it immediately grabbed my attention. I started freestyling and came up with what would be the melody of the chorus and the overall direction of the song. Melo challenged me to finish writing the song and he would make sure to hold that beat for me. So I got in the studio later that week.
I wanted to get another voice on it and thought that would be the golden opportunity to hit up Alexis and she was down from the jump.
We met when I went to Atlanta back in 2013 for A3C. She was one of the first artists I immediately connected with and we ended up developing a friendship over the years. This is our first collaboration together but definitely not the last.
As Taigenz mentioned, Lemme Ball will be on his upcoming album. Keep an eye out for that.
