After taking a hiatus to deal with the personal, Emilio Rojas is back with new material for his fans. Life Got In The Way was recorded in New York before his relocation to the West Coast. His voice emerges from a defining chapter in his life to be displayed with confidence on his long-awaited project assisted by !LLMind as executive producer.
The rapper describes himself as part of the rage against the machine.
I’m Emilio Rojas and I’m at war with love and at odds with the system. I’m always in conflict. Like it’s perpetual conflict, whether it’s in my personal life, my relationships, my own identity, or what’s going on in the world.
While he is mindful about bringing important issues to the forefront of his lyrics, Rojas still provides emotional balance to his content.
You hear sh*t that’s fun and you love it forever, too, and I’m not saying I don’t want to make fun music, but I also feel like my fans get mad at me when I talk about things that aren’t super serious. Like damn, y’all want me to be f**king miserable? [Laughs]
