If you've never heard of Connecticut rapper Jeans Shepherd, now is a good time to get familiar. His latest track, "Burden," is a prime example of his sharp lyricism and potent sound over jazzy production. Loud brass and smooth drums create the perfect backdrop for Jeans to paint his life's picture.
For those of you who aren't into smooth, the second verse offers a taste of double-time bars whose change in sound mirrors the same changes Jeans Shepherd speaks about experiencing on this track. Although this appears to be a single that we might not find on any upcoming releases, one thing's for sure: Rap needs more people like Jeans Shepherd.
