Last night Champ Tile released his debut 10k Hourz (ten thousand hours) album, a fifteen-track body of work with only one guest feature from Duncan. The project holds weight and Champ displays himself as a skilled lyricist throughout while also sticking to the concept of each track.
While I Can is a bouncy tune with a Jazz vibe and Champ raps about doing all that he possibly can while he can "still smell the flowers." He generally talks about his efforts of trying to make it and how he works hard to keep all his relationships intact. He tones it down a notch on the uncensored Real Life where he raps about how social media misses out on real events, saying that nothing beats real life. Vula and As'lali share a similar concept of grinding and needing to get to the top, which doesn't seem too far ahead considering how talented Champ really is. You'd think Rejection is about a girl who denied Champ the time of day, but no. He actually talks about never being given a chance to show people his skill, basically being slept on. Inkani is assisted by Duncan and has a hard-hitting beat while both rappers display their arrogance in the game, Champ continues with a similar attitude on I Told Ya where he talks about how people never paid him any attention until now. Blasphemy is about how every rapper believes they're "gods," it quickly became a favourite of mine from the project.
On Your Mind and Stolen Hearts II are both about a lady Champ started dating although the latter track is more laid back where he talks about a girl who chose money over his love. He continues the same narrative on Another Episode, a hard-hitting track that has him rapping about a girl he loved who broke his heart and made up lies about him. He later addresses shady people who act all humble in front of others and suddenly switch up behind the scenes. Champ tones it down on the last three tracks and the final track, which is also the outro, has him expressing his gratitude to the listeners and all those who support him. 10k Hourz really holds weight, a stellar body of work.
