Dereos Roads has released his latest single, aptly titled “Dereos Roads.” While it could immediately be interpreted to be a celebration of the artist himself, nothing could be further from the truth. The track is about the creative journey, and it emphasizes that Dereos Roads is a place, a path and a goal. Sonically the track is a mix of boom bap, brass, jazz and Dereos’ trademark delivery showcasing creative wordplay and imagery. Taking the production a step further, Dereos enlisted the help of trumpet player Matt Giella, and the collaboration was a perfect fit.
It’s about two weeks in and we’re getting a great response for Dereos Roads’ “Worlds Apart.” So far we’ve heard “he’s a cool rapper” and the song has “crossover appeal” while remaining “gutter.” To keep the momentum growing, check out the lyrics video (releasing on 8/8 at 2 PM EST) and stay tuned for the official video in the coming weeks.
