Whether it is lyrics, flow, thoughtfulness, intelligence, or precision in blending all four together, LJak is the artist to pay attention to. With a sophomore album expected to be a greater success than his first album, LJak is changing the game of hip-hop not simply with words or with scheme, but with approach and delivery.
Self-Esteem: Chapter Two is LJak’s soon to be released second album. His first album was about his life as a writer, public speaker, and author in the world of philosophy and theology. Listening to Self-Esteem, one finds the artist, while learning how to handle life as a philosopher in the limelight, learning how to respond to possessing celebrity from the things that he wrote and taught. In the midst of all of this, we yet find the artist learning love, and how to love. All of this, including how real LJak is about his public and private life, makes Self-Esteem one of the best hip-hop albums of 2021.
His fans want Self-Esteem: Chapter Two. His fans want to know about the next chapter of his life. If we could just appreciate what this young man is doing, we would see that he is doing more than giving us his life story. Self-Esteem has songs like Your Worth, Slow Down, 2Lovers, Your Mistake, Capable, Liar, and Reform, songs in which LJak isn’t just giving listeners and insight into his life, but is imploring them to take a personal interest into their own.
His respect for women, his love for affection, him advocating for mental health, his call for communication in relationships, his desire to see every male and female possessing a clearer vision of their self for bettering themselves, and then for bettering their environments, Self-Esteem is more than a hip-hop or rap album: it is revolutionary. Everything LJak writes in books and lectures about to audiences, it is exactly what he places into his music, but in the form of an art that is extraordinary and uncommon. If this is what LJak has given us with Self-Esteem, who can be surprised that his fans are eagerly anticipating his next album, Self-Esteem: Chapter Two?
