Former Das Racist member Heems has announced that his debut solo album, Eat, Pray, Thug, will be released on Mar. 10 via Megaforce Records. Along with the announcement of the album, Heems liberates the project's first single, "Sometimes," that features some explosive, clap-heavy production from Gordon Voidwell. In addition to this energetic track, Heems revealed that the album will feature appearances and work from Dev Hynes, Harry Fraud, Boody B, and more. The new single and a statement from Heems on the track can be found below.
“‘Sometimes’ is about dualities, identity and the space between spaces. Like so many other people, as a first generation South Asian in the U.S. I often felt like I lived two lives, an Indian one and an American one. I lived, at once, in and between two spaces and outside them as well. On another level, I also often felt like in America I lived in the space between black and white. Dualities are normal though. As fun as rap is, I can’t always feel happy. Sometimes I feel sad too. It also pays homage to hip-hop before me with cadences referencing both Nice and Smooth and Busta Rhymes.”
