Crime can be viewed as a viable means of survival amid financial hardships, but Reconcile offers an alternative plan on his new single, “Ain’t No Way,” now available for streaming and purchase. Writing from personal experiences, the South Florida rapper penned the track from his forthcoming mixtape during a particular tough time and describes it as the “most emotional song” on the set.
“I remember sitting down and not having money in my pocket, cars broken down, just moved back home to Florida, wife pregnant with twins and things weren't looking good,” he explains. “I knew I had to trust God that he would provide. I know there are people in these shoes every single day. That’s what the song is about.”
In June, the hip hop artist who has been covered on HipHopDX, 2DopeBoyz and Rapzilla, released the stand alone single, “Reckless,” a redemptive song about the struggle to walk away from a life of crime.
Reconcile has found success with each of his previous releases. His 2012 free release, Abandoned Hope, received more than 45,000 downloads while he was still a senior at Rice University where he received a Bachelor of Arts in Religious Studies, Philosophy and Sociology. His debut album Sacrifice reached No. 3 on the iTunes Hip Hop chart and debuted at No. 20 on Billboard’s Top Rap Albums chart. His last set, the Catchin’ Bodies EP, debuted at No. 30 on the Billboard Christian chart.
