“Talk About” is the lead single off Laytrel’s upcoming album “Things Never Said”. Produced by JayFive, and shot/directed by Versa Visuals, the eerie but luminous visual features blistering braggadocio and a message to Laytrel’s peers: He isn’t here for the small talk and he isn’t buying what they’re selling.
DC born, Baltimore bred, Laytrel is a DMV wonder-kid who was playing guitar, emceeing, and producing/engineering records at an age most of your favorite rappers were getting braces. As a youth, his father laid down drum beats while Laytrel laced accompanying guitar riffs. Now all grown up and having bared witness to some of life’s harshest realities, Laytrel composes soundscapes and pens verses that encapsulate his pain.
