Taylor Bennett just released a new EP titled “The American Reject.” Available for download and streaming, Bennett’s latest music project lists 8 songs with features from Supa Bwe, Serayeh, Ty Dolla Sign, Melo Makes Music, Zxxk, Bianca Shaw, Femdot, Mr. Hudson, Forever Band, and Taylor’s brother Chance The Rapper.
Taylor Bennett released a music video for “Streaming Services” back in February and now the Chicago artist returns with his latest body of work THE AMERICAN REJECT.
According to Bennett via a Lyrical Lemonade interview:
The reason I named it The American Reject was because my last tape was called Be Yourself and it was all about the acceptance and the idea of understanding, knowing, and discovering who you are.
With that philosophy and while really researching it, I realized to myself that what I want to do with my music is to bring people together, and I think the best way to bring people together sometimes is to even out the playing field. I think that very often we try to use things like skin color, money, materialistic assets and others like that to say that we are better than other people, but I think that even people who have money buy these things because they feel and want to be accepted by a different class or different people.
It brought me to the overall idea that all of us are rejects and we really all don’t belong, but that’s a part of being unique, different, and standing out. I wanted to further that idea and get more people to understand that even KKK members are rejects because you can be accepted by some people and hated by others. Everyone deals with it: transsexuals, black kids, white kids, doctors, everyone.
