Chicago rapper Taylor Bennett has announced that his upcoming Be Yourself EP will be released July 12th and has shared the tracklist to the project on Instagram. The 6-track effort features guest appearances from Bianca Shaw, Supa BWE, ZXXK and Young Thug. The announcement comes along with a message from Bennett, which he shared both in a written caption accompanying the post, and also recited in a video.
“I’m making this project for Our future, & for Our Children,” he writes of the project. “‘Be YourSelf.’ isn’t just an album rather an opportunity for a ‘Round Table‘ discussion. I emphasis the words round table because this discussion is not one to be had in private. No. No one is innocent in this conversation & no group of people are at fault for the flaws in Our society but as a unit we are judged by the choices & systems we design to upheld Power & Capital amongst certain communities based upon skin color, sexuality , gender & Above. Im not saying Be Black, Be Gay Or Be Different I’m Just saying ‘Be Yourself.'”
