The weekend marked the arrvial of new tunes from some our favorites and with that came Brent Faiyaz's newest Lost EP, a six-track offering of some of Brent's most vulnerable tracks to date. Lost finds Brent back on his bully as he delivers on doses of nostalgia, all wrapped in a 2018-esque package. One standout from the pack is "Trust," coming through at the midpoint of the effort as Brent croons about the eternal fly-on-the-wall that accompanies fame.
"'Trust' is my vent," Brent tells Billboard. "In 2018, nothing is sacred. Everyone is everywhere and knows everybody. I don’t text too personal because somebody might screenshot it and share it. People stare at me. They stop me and talk my ear off about working and collaborating when I’m drunk in the club or out getting groceries. I’ve had random women find my address and wait outside my apartment building. [There's] no more privacy. Strangers having opinions about me is one of the wildest things I’ve had to come to terms with. Now I just really don’t give a fuck."
Hood fame, everybody know my name when
I come through
But don't nobody scream it like you
I was having visions with you
Doing thangs, switching lanes in the beamer
