Yel’s newest project The Life I Live explores the struggle and drama that she has experienced in writing, recording, and releasing music in this turbulent world. Always providing relatable lyrics and pushing her rap prowess, Yel has provided us with a wild and emotional EP just in time for winter.
Yel starts The Life I Live with a sense of nostalgia in the track “Summer”, and brings back that yearning with a laid back smooth flow in the tracks “How Many Days” and “Moments & Therapy”.
The project also showcases Yel’s emotional explosions in the powerful tracks, “It’s That”, “Live”, and “Insane”. This EP ranges from the smooth to the gritty and packs a punch at every lyric and beat drop.
I had the pleasure of interviewing Yel about The Life I Live, the inspiration and process behind this tumultuous project, and what she has in store for us in the future.
