Brooklyn rapper Jimi Tents has released his first project since 2015, I Can’t Go Home.
Tents initially got the project in motion with “Should’ve Called Pt. 2” in January before releasing “Domino Effect” and “Rick Rubin” over the next couple months (in addition to a vicious “Phone Down” freestyle).
The album dives into Tents’ experiences with gentrification in Brooklyn, in that his home is a completely different place than what he grew up in. “In a way the project recaps where I’ve been in the last year and a half, the perils I’ve experienced, what I’ve achieved since my first release, 5 O’Clock Shadow,” Tents told The FADER. “I really wanted to touch on where I’m from, and highlight the fact that gentrification is fucking up a lot of peoples’ lives.”
