Luckily for Tracy’s peace of mind, he’s refurbishing his previous dysphoric threads and wearing a lighter and more carefree version of himself. To be known merely as a “SoundCloud rapper” would be an understatement. Tracy’s diverse discography mirrors his mutinous lifestyle, purely driven by an appetite for freedom.
In his upcoming record, Designer Talk 2, Tracy channels that insatiable hunger for pleasure and channels back to his source of confidence: his roots. This nod to his home base can be heard woven into tracks that pay homage to true designer talk, Virginia flex-flare. This style of music can be heard mastered by acclimated artists like Pharrell and The Clipse, but with a flamboyant Tracy-twist to it. It is safe to say that, at least right now, Tracy is in a pocket of flexing and fun.
The rapper stopped by our office to play dress up, and to talk about his new album and headspace.
How’re you in these trying times?
I’m good. I’ve just been playing a lot of video games.
Are you playing Animal crossing?
No, I’ve been playing Minecraft.
You’ve been dropping music at such a rapid rate ahead of the newest album. "Bonjour" is the latest single. I’m assuming you speak French?
No, I don’t. But I made the song during a time where I was talking to this French girl and she was trying to teach me to French, so yeah.
