The new song Pride by Mantra Sounds featuring Grim Steez has dropped this week and it is a banger. Lyrical raps accompany a deep dark beat that is overall emotional and thought-provoking.
Mantra Sounds is from Philadelphia originally and is an active member of the bass music community. “I’ve got bags under my eyes bitch ill sleep when I'm dead” is the perfect anthem for the overworked culture of the young people today. Yet we love it because we get it. Why sleep when there is so much to do, so much to create and so much to share. Her silky-smooth voice raps in an unbreaking flow that is sexy and sultry.
It’s no wonder that promoters are talking up Mantra Sounds on the regular. Her sound is unique, and her lyrics are pure poetry. “These broken wings made by porcelain dolls yeah I was made to fly but I’m falling apart.”
The beat has expansive sound design elements that fill the space absolutely. Even the background flutter and ticktock clock noise add an element of mystery to the song. The screaming of the lyrics at the end is the pinnacle of the song and adds a deep primal feel. This song is the next after her Envy and Greed release in Jan 2022. I look forward to seeing the next of the 7 deadly sins.
