Magestik Legend shares his next single “DetroitMental” from his All This Time album coming out Friday. He raps about being an independent artist from Detroit and not using big-name artists to bring attention to his music. But it is also a tribute to the city because since he relocated to California he thinks a great deal about his hometown. He says,
“With all the ups, downs, memories and new beginnings, sometimes I feel like my city and I are living the same life. Detroit is my city. I call it ‘my Detroit’ because my personal experiences in this beautiful city shape my perspective of it. I’ve always shied away from making a typical ‘Detroit song,’ partly because it’s become such a soulless trend where I’m from. But since I moved to California a couple years ago, I’ve really missed my city. Though the landscape seems to change every time I leave, it will always be my Detroit. My Detroit is constantly on my mind, especially when I’m away.”
Listen to “DetroitMental” and All This Time is available for pre-order.
