Self-Conscious-[Tullis] x [Donnie Durag] x [Roddy]

“I’ve been trying to remain present, and not lose sight of the whole reason I do this. This one is for all of you when you doubt whether or not you’re great, YOU ARE!⁣”Tullis

Phoenix, Arizona native Tullis returns to Lyrical Lemonade with a brand new banger titled “Self-Conscious.” Featuring Flatbush, Brooklyn’s Donnie Durag, in my opinion this is undoubtedly Tullis’ best single release to date. Produced by Roddy, the song opens up immediately with a glorious melody sample moments before Tullis showcases his signature introspective flow. On Durag’s short yet excellent verse, Donnie takes a slightly more optimistic approach; making money off misfortune for instance. Alluding to his difficulties as an artist, Tullis’ sky-high ambition of “being the greatest there ever was” contrasts with his current social standing. The predicament and/or burden of being ‘underrated’ can mentally drain artists; especially  independent ones as they tirelessly push for placements to elevate their own discographic stature. Like any worthwhile endeavor, creative inspiration is hard to maintain without some form of earned recognition. Hence the ever-importance to always remain ‘self-conscious’ of one’s talent(s), which can never be denied no matter public opinion. Support the track and listen below!
