Today, Joyner Lucas took to Zane Lowe's Beats 1 show to premiere his new single "I Love," off his upcoming album ADHD. Taking to an up-tempo instrumental, Joyner makes it clear that he's not to be trifled with in all manners of hip-hop. "You got to keep that same energy," warns Joyner, "I'm not no regular entity, I'm not your friend I'm not your enemy."
Though Joyner Lucas has been experiencing an undeniable sense of upward trajectory, the young rapper still feels like there are dues to be paid. "It's like I don't feel like I reached the place where I'm ready to actually drop an album, because I feel like an album is, you pulling all your stops. You know what I'm saying? That's your best," explains Lucas. "Once you get to that place where you can pull all the stops and make your album an absolute masterpiece the way that you've always pictured it, then I would consider that an album. This project is like, I'm still on the come up."
Not many artists on the come-up can boast a collaboration with Eminem, but Joyner Lucas is nothing if not humble. Be sure to keep an eye out for ADHD, dropping in the near future. What do you think about "I Love?"
You got to keep that same energy
I'm not no regular entity,
I'm not your friend I'm not your enemy
I don't know what's gotten into me
