“No matter the struggle, you piece it together, regardless the puzzle…”
– quote from “Immortal”
“Immortal” is a song fresh off Focus the Truth’s new album, “Immortal”. The song merges the style of hip-hop with the raw bars of rap to give off this masterpiece. In this song, Focus the Truth shows off his lyrical ability as he tells his listeners he won’t be stopped nor derailed.
One could say it’s the typical rapper bragging, but “Immortal” is more than bragging. It’s Focus the Truth making a promise to stay at the top of his game, come what may, insisting he won’t accept handouts but will make it his own way.
The video of “Immortal” lends credence to a lot of what Focus the Truth raps about, as for most parts of the video, he’s shown playing chess, a well known game that requires intellectual acumen. This is Focus the Truth saying he has what it takes to rise and he will continue to do so and make use of his time properly.
The scenes in the video oscillate between showing Focus the Truth at his chess game and showing him with his gang, who surely have his back.
Recorded and released in Queens, “Immortal” is one of the best rap/hip-hop songs of 2020.
A New York City Queens native, Focus the Truth has been rapping since 14 and has been able to learn the power of lyrics and how to weave words together so he can pass the exact message he intends to pass across.
His lyrical abilities stem from starting out his career as a poet and writing battle raps, and he uses these abilities to unite classic hip-hop and rap. Focus the Truth is fond of cartoons and hip-hop, and his creativity shines forth in the way he recreates lyrical experiences that transcend generations. His music is all about delivering the right message with his abilities, rather than trying to fit into the seeming industry standard of repeatedly rapping about stereotypes.
