The always real Emmy award-winning Oklahoma City rapper Jabee brings a powerful performance to his track ‘Tried So Hard’. From the soulful vocal sample on the Phen-produced single and the vulnerability of Jabee’ lyrics are emphasized by the haunting visuals directed by Todd Beats of a man torn to pieces by the very people he craves to please.
Jabee says the song is about “me dealing with my insecurities, my faults and how people will kick you not knowing that you are already beating yourself up inside. The video is a picture of that and how you still need to be able to smile through it all.”
This is just another amazing track and video from his latest album ‘Black Future’ a hard-hitting preview into raw emotions and uncut feelings that construct his third full-length release. An in-depth look into the tremulous times in today’s society. With features from heavyweights like Chuck D, Brother Ali and Killer Mike as well as production from J57, Hannibal King and M Stack. Don’t just take our word on how dope this artist and album is, as the great Chuck D of Public Enemy says “Jabee’s music has the potential to change the world.”
