It’s been a minute since we caught up with our man TLNTD, but rest assured the dude is #workin !

Keeping up with his #TLNTDTuesday campaign, the Chicago hip-hop artist has been steady making moves on releasing new music every Tuesday.

Two tracks that have really caught our eye are last month’s “Life” and the most recent release, “Been”.

“Life” offers a slower feel then we’re used to from TLNTD, but it conveys a large amount of emotion. Dedicated to his late friend Page, who was tragically killed last year due to senseless Chicago violence, “Life” is about living a life with purpose and realizing what we have can be taken from us at any moment. It’s about facing your doubts and not letting life pass you by. It’s a concept that’s tackled by many artists, yet, an idea that never comes to fruition. Let “Life” inspire you to do the thing that scares you, because you never know when it’s going to be your last day. R.I.P. Page (1992-2015).


Contrasting with “Life”, “Been”, TLNTD’s latest release for #TLNTDTuesday is a more upbeat track that features confident lyrics with an impressive flow.

Produced by VintageToyGun , “Been” tells the story of TLNTD’s world since becoming successful. He raps about his perseverance, his work ethic, achieving money in the simplest of fashions, and of course, those who continue to look down on his triumphs (the word “haters” has become synonymous with “poppin”, word to Rico Richie).

Do yourself a favor and check out these two tracks by streaming them on soundcloud above! Look out for more #TLNTDTuesday tracks dropping every Tuesday, every week!
