The newly independent Bull JR is pushing a track that is quite different from his usual output. He put together a stirring loosey single called “Little Brother.” It is produced by Original Vision and serves as a heartfelt message of awareness to older siblings.

The production here is finely composed. The hushed base, somber musical ingredients, slower tempo, and weighted vibe work effortlessly together. The hook is touching. The delivery is full of emotion and the lyrics are simple yet effective. The verses are poignant. Bull JR disperses a passionate flow, up-front wordplay, and deeply personal rhymes. He pours out a piece that allows him to get some things off of his chest in regards to his relationships with his older brothers while at the same time sending out a bit of enlightenment to siblings everywhere. An excerpt from his memo includes: “Now I’ve grown to be the age of 22. You got locked up when I was at the age of only 2. So when you call it’s kind of awkward. I don’t really know what to do. When you talking like what’s good? And I’m like n—a where was you? Talking like we was just friends. Talking ’bout that way back when. Talking about how long it’s been. F–k that, n—a where you been? Cause I been out here on these streets. And I been walking ’em on my own man. Got a question, why the f–k you leave me alone? Damn.” One can not deny the gripping impact of those lines right there. Overall, this is a truly powerful selection.

**My Two Cents: This is one of Bull JR’s best tracks for sure. The beat fits the tone of the lyrics perfectly. The content is extremely moving and pointed. It couldn’t have been easy to share such personal pain and reflection but I am glad that Bull did. His words will undoubtedly leave a lasting impression on the listener. Hope he got through to those he needed to as well. Grab a couple of tissues and click that play button. You won’t regret it. -MinM
