Training Season are a trio from Canada. They’re releasing an album — The Caexar Saga: L Man — later this year, and the call on Mick Jenkins for one of the project’s singles, “Margarine.”
“‘Margarine’ is a metaphor used to summarize our observation of how rap has changed over the years,” Training Season told The FADER, who premiered the single. “Growing up, rap had substance & told a story. There was a connection between lyric, artist and community. This song is our way of navigating through what was and what is now defined as rap. In an era where ignorance and lack of substance seems to be rewarded, we find ourselves at a crossroad, dealing with the temptation to stray away from who we truly are as artists.”
