Tellin Ya – [Lil Gotit] ft. [Lil PJ]

Recently, I’ve been seeing some stories that mention Atlanta’s very own Lil Gotit following in the footsteps of his older brother Lil Keed, but I have to slightly disagree with this statement. Sure, he’s got a slightly similar sound and he makes hits, but he’s blazing a trail of his own that differentiates himself from his older sibling. Although he took a very brief hiatus after releasing his latest project Hood Baby 2 and some music videos for the effort, but luckily, that break came to an end late last night.

He ends his silence with a wonderful new track entitled “Tellin Ya” which also features a friend of his who goes by the name of Lil PJ. A mixture of powerful piano chords and a high-pitched, intergalactic synth creates a fantastic melody that is brought to new worlds with terse percussion and blasting drums, paving the way for Gotit to demonstrate all of his skills while also introducing listeners to some new ones. On the chorus, he delivers one line at a time, allowing animated ad-libs to fill the space in between each bar. He continues a similar cadence into his verse before switching things up briefly, ultimately ending his part with a carefully sung portion that comes off shaky and revealing in the most powerful, moving fashion.

Prior to this track, I was completely unaware of Lil PJ, but after hearing his verse, I was thoroughly impressed and definitely know now that I need to tune into his other releases as soon as possible. He begins with a much quicker flow than his counterpart while also utilizing similar vocal effects that make him sound quite Comparable to Gotit himself. Despite this, he raises and lowers his tone of voice consistently and adds some dexterity to the track, eventually bringing things to a new level that I didn’t quite expect, but I completely appreciate, nonetheless.

As for the music video that comes with this new single, they keep things pretty clean and simple by using only a few different settings, allowing their outfits and personalities to steal the show. One scene takes place in a dark room that has some blacklight accents, illuminating certain parts of their garments like the neon butterflies on one of Gotit’s shirts as well as the bright green drawstring on his hoodie. Later on, this same shot contains a slew of triangular fashioned lights in his rearview, leading your eyes off into the distance for an effect that looks like these lights might just go off infinitely into space. The only other scene that is shown is in an all-white, clean film studio where the two artists continue to wear their bright clothing and show off their diamond-studded jewelry. In order to stick with the theme of simplicity, Gotit is joined only by PJ, his own son, and a select few lovely ladies who dance around with the artists.

Considering this is the first we’ve heard from Gotit in at least a few weeks, I’m excited to see what he has in store for us moving forward. Clearly, he’s working hard on something special, and this track is a perfect reintroduction after the slight break he took, most likely to lock into his music and spend some undistracted time in the studio. Hearing him switch things up, get more introspective, and somewhat sing at the end of his verse showed a side of him that I was previously unaware of, and getting PJ on this record was a wonderful addition, to say the least. Due to the fact that Gotit is one of the most consistent artists in the game, I wouldn’t be surprised if we had another project in our hands before the end of the year, if not early next year, but only time will tell if that’s true or not. Regardless, make sure to check out Lil Gotit and Lil PJ’s most recent single “Tellin Ya” as soon as possible.
