When Creatives express themselves, they do it hard. While it’s no surprise when Artists tell stories about their lives through their work, Turks & Caicos Rapper Lady Livi joins those who have a couple chapters to share. Recently she dropped the follow up to her “Daddy Issues” EP, and she lets listeners in on her life like a session with a Therapist. With 5 tracks, she uses the platform given to vent over various productions. To paraphrase the words of Rapper Jay Z, “I can’t see them coming down my eyes, so I gotta let these songs cry“. Check out the project below, and share with a friend. Show us some love on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.
