Thutmose has just dropped a very generous 15-track collection of tunes called ‘Man On Fire’, and it sure is getting me nice and toasty.
There is a huge cast of guest collaborators on this release including Pink Sweat$, KillaGraham, Scott Storch, Tricky Stewart, Desiigner and Erykah Badu just to name a few, and in an interview with Billboard, Thutmose gives up the meaning behind ‘Man On Fire’;
“It’s a metaphor for how I view life. When chaos ensues, it doesn’t matter what’s happening, you can still balance it out. That’s why on the cover I’m standing there on fire with my face showing no signs of distress. Having the SWAT team come to my door, growing up in a crazy area and seeing crazy shit all the time, it’s a lot. It was a huge learning process and I always remembered that knowing where I’m from and knowing what I’ve been through will always help me keep going. I learned that a lot of crazy shit happens in life but you can’t let it consume you. You just have to keep going.”
Thutmose also has a few shows happening in Brooklyn and Los Angeles over the next week and you really should go watch this guy live – see the dates below and the go get your tickets here
