Showing the ability to translate raw emotions into relatable street anthems, Lil Baby’s 4PF signee Lil Kee is one of rap’s promising young storytellers. Firing off lyrical rounds of his retrospective thoughts and audible grief with the ease of an AK-47, the Cobb County, GA riser shares “Automatic,” his new single from his project, Letter 2 My Brother, available everywhere June 3 via Four Pockets Full Inc.
Following his heartwarming tribute to his late older brother on project title track “Letter 2 My Brother” (over 937K+ YT views to date), “Automatic” emphasizes Lil Kee’s pain as he unpacks the loss of a loved one. Putting his vulnerability on full display over melancholic piano keys, Kee reevaluates several of the decisions he’s made in life as he shares some of his biggest regrets: “I wish I was there when big bro died and help put up a fight/ Lot of n****s ain’t even wanna slide, it opened up my eyes.” The chilling Diesel Filmz-directed video finds Kee in blood-stained clothes and shoes as he digs a grave in an empty forest. “Automatic” is a great example of what I love about Lil Kee. He doesn’t shy away from the trauma he’s faced, and his music reflects the influences that made him the man he is today. Looking forward to propelling his career to the next level, Lil Kee is focused on building a legacy of his own while carrying the spirit of his lost loved ones through his lyrics.
