Since the release of his 2018 EP Sinner, Lil Tracy has kept relatively quiet, outside of a handful of singles and features. Today, the recent FADER cover star returns with “Bad For You”, the first single off his upcoming album, Anarchy. The song is a return to what rocketed Tracy into the forefront of the rap landscape: melodic, guitar-assisted production, brooding lyrics, and emotional crooning that occasionally crosses into an anguished wail.
There’s a certain balance this time around, though: Tracy is weighing positive developments in his life with the usual love-related struggles. "I've been great ever since I left LA," he sings. "I'm not gonna lie to you and say that it's ok." Although an official release date for Anarchy has yet to be revealed, the single suggests it may be sooner rather than later. "I know what my fans have wanted from me this whole time. Bad For You and Anarchy is me finally giving it to them," Tracy told the FADER over email. "I'm gonna die later."
