301 Pacs, a rapper and songwriter from Washington who also goes by the name Aaron Charles, has made an epic return with the new EP, Cyclical Nature. The follow-up to his previous release “Life Jacket,” comprises two tracks, “Breath Out” and “Woke Up,” that portray the life of the young American. The Hip Hop artist keeps his audience engaged throughout the record, showcasing his potential as an emerging talent in the scene.
Speaking of the creative process of Cyclical Nature, 301 Pacs reveals: “I made these songs separately, but after recording back to back, I realized that they fit perfectly together to describe my experience with the American work-life balance.” He explains: “‘Woke Up’ came from my short time working two jobs with two different shifts,” and the inspiration behind “Breathe Out” came from a night out in Orlando where the artist hit the club with a girl and stepped out of his comfort zone.
With “Woke Up,” 301 Pacs finds a way to break free from the monotony of the daily grind, while “Breath Out” celebrates the release of the soul from its chains, urging listeners to let go and embrace life. The track is a nod to those who dare to take risks and grasp opportunities with unwavering determination. Packed with catchy lyrics like “She’s got a wild mind / Dreams floating on clouds / Pass the blunt, let’s get lost / Alright baby, it’s time to bounce,” the song is a call to arms for those who are brave enough to jump in and dance to the beat of their own drum.
Drawing inspiration from his idols Drake, Vince Staples, Kendrick Lamar, and Frank Ocean, 301 Pacs delivers music with soulful lyrics and hard-hitting beats that leave a lasting impact on his fans. The release of his EP Cyclical Nature, featuring the blazing tracks “Breath Out” and “Woke Up,” marks the beginning of his journey in the game, solidifying his spot as a promising up-and-comer in the hip-hop scene.
