Label: Hopeless Records
Released: 15th July 2022
Opening with a spoken work introduction, Travie McCoy is a unique voice.
As the forming-force for Gym Class Heroes, it could be argued he was a man ahead of his time, embracing the genre-free future long before the zeitgeist caught up.
A record that charts the fightback from the lowest of lows, it’s clear this is an album full of cathartic release. Therapy to music, it’s honest, truthful and real – but not so dark it ever loses a sense of playfulness. ■ Dan Harrison
