Elcamino returns today with “Fashionably Late” with an assist from Keisha Plum.
The survivor of a tumultuous upbringing and various stints in jail, Elcamino creates art that is adjacent to the life he has led, survived and as he evolves—strives to leave behind.
Elcamino’s versatility sets him apart from his peers. Lyrically, he is capable of painting bleak tales and violent escapades, but also deft at seamlessly shifting styles mid-verse to highlight his soulful and moody singing voice. Both of these attributes create exhilarating musical highs.
2020 and 2021 have both been extremely trying years for Elcamino from a personal perspective, as he has had to persevere and deal with significant loss, as both his younger sister and brother passed away. Weathering that trauma has helped shape a new outlook on his life, and those perspectives are apparent throughout his forthcoming project Let There Be Light.
Today, Camino released the first single, “Fashionably Late,” from Let There Be Light. “Fashionably Late” features Griselda’s poetess Keisha Plum and is produced by Street Runner.
Let There Be Light will be released this fall with production from Camouflage Monk and Street Runner.
