Taylor Bennett Releases "Be Yourself" EP
A six-track EP that he hopes that is going to push people out of an "uncomfortable state".
Chicago artist Taylor Bennett has followed up his Restoration Of An American Idol's album of last year with a new EP titled Be Yourself.
The new project features Young Thug, Bianca Shaw, Supa BWE, and Zxxc with the production of Stix, CEOBEATZ, and others. Bennett said in a press release of a personal nature this EP is, saying that working in it was like "reading your journal." He also hopes to shine a light on what seems to be an "uncomfortable" in the society of today.
Bennett published an Instagram post that explains the inspiration behind the title of the project.
*JULY 12,* I'm doing this project for Our future and for Our Children. "Be Yourself". it is not only an album, but that is an opportunity for a "Round Table" discussion. I emphasis the words of the round-table discussion because this discussion is not to be had in private. No. No one is innocent in this conversation, and no group of people is at fault for the failures in Our society, but as a unit, we are judged by the elections and the systems that we design to ratified the Power And Capital among certain communities based on skin color, sexuality , gender and more. I'm not saying that to Be Black, Be Gay Or to Be Different, I'm Just saying "Be Yourself". – Taylor Bennett #LinkInBio #BEYOURSELF ?
