Latrell James reflects on gentrification in "Tracphone"

Latrell James drops off his new song "Tracphone"

Latrell James

Emerging Boston artist/producer, Latrell James, shares his first offering of the year titled "Tracphone." The self-produced track highlights Latrell's feelings on gentrification: " 'Tracphone' to me is when you no longer feel like you belong in a place where you grew up. It's those lone footprints in the snow. Gentrification takes a toll on communities of color and I wanted make light of that while also highlighting other important issues that affect us too. 'Tracphone' is more of a metaphor for wanting to hold onto things that are "old" vs the new --- and overall being proud of who you are and where you come from." Take a listen below:
