Passion and lyricism pair perfectly on new single
‘Love Woes’ from artist Botimi Freed
MONTGOMERY COUNTY, MD – When most people think about love songs, they don’t necessarily think about an electro-trap heart ballad. But that’s the exact sound that Hip Hop artist Botimi Freed has captured with his new single “Love Woes.” And it’s a sound that is drawing attention and high praise from big names all across the music industry.
Operating out of Montgomery County, Maryland, this up-and-coming young artist is a name you need to know. His new hit single is just the first of many to come. And in just two years of making music professionally, he has already seen his music go to great heights, including radio play on Baltimore’s biggest stations.
Born in Houston, Texas, Botimi moved to Maryland with his family at age 12 and has been an East Coast native ever since. Unlike many other artists in the industry, Botimi didn’t find his passion for music until his late teenage years. He started rapping at age 17 when his classmates heard him freestyle and praised him for being better than the rest. They encouraged him to give professional music a try. And when his first song recorded in 2016 took off with fans all over the area, he realized he had a natural talent that needed to be shared with the world. He’s worked on a few other songs since that time and now with “Love Woes,” he is ready to make a bigger splash in the industry and with a widening fanbase.
“It’s crazy to see how far I’ve come from just freestyling with my homies in the neighborhood,” he said. “I never thought that when I put those raps to some beats and started putting out tracks that people would love it as much as they have. I was just inspired by the greats and kind of fell into it. And like those legends, I’d like my music to be known for being melodic and timeless. I want people to be able to listen to my music now or 10 years from now and it will always be relevant and touch them in some way.”
In the case of “Love Woes,” Botimi said fans anywhere will be able to relate to the stories that came from personal experiences with some of his relationships from the past. He said the song basically examines three love affairs from his life in ways that anyone who has ever been in a relationship will be able to relate to.
“Each of the three verses talks about three chicks from my life,” he said. “The third verse is my real chick – my home chick. And the moral of the song is that love is not for sale. You can’t buy it. It’s a song that’s definitely inspired from real life and my experiences of being in different relationships in my life – the breakups and makeups and all the things that people learn over time that you have to fight for if you want something real and deep.”
Botimi said he’s working on an EP that will drop in January called “Player and a Savage.” That combined with the wave of success he’s seeing with “Love Woes” is something that he said he’s sure will propel him into an even greater 2020.
