Mitch Darrell drops “Self-Reflection” EP and it’s a captivating, soulful project that beacons the ears of all music lovers!
Charlotte, NC – It has been one year since the release of Mitch Darrell’s last album, ‘Dreadhead Lando’. Since then, Mitch has been building his resume as an artist including: collaborations with CHH heavy-hitters such as KJ-52, participating in numerous rap challenges with several victories to his name, and being selected as part of the Trackstarz’ “Next Up 2020” list that highlights artists that are ready to take that next step during the upcoming year.
After a busy 2019, Mitch is ready to drop another project – the EP, ‘Self-Reflection’.
Darrell is showcasing that there is more to his music than fast raps and Star Wars references as he delivers a set of songs that are his most transparent to date.
“Self-Reflection’ is a short but introspective EP” states Darrell. “It dives into my mind, heart, and soul as both an artist and a Christian.”
Featuring production that draws in the listener as well as collaborations that compliment delivery choices of Darrell, ‘Self-Reflection’ is sure to garner plenty of attention within the Christian Hip Hop community. It heavily displays a side of Darrell that there has only been snippets of to this point.
One thing I’ve never questioned about Mitch Darrell is his love for God and his blackness! Self-Reflection is a powerful EP that tackles both aspects of Mitch Darrell and other tough subject matter.
What stood out on Self Reflection is the way Mitch Darell approached his ethnic heritage on both sides. The conflict of being too black and not black enough!
Both of my parents are retired Air Force so I too have this conflict. I had a great suburb life myself, but sometimes I get caught up because my parents raised me to not be ashamed of my blackness. Plus living in the south is tough.
On another angle, though I have conflicts with self as not putting my blackness over my salvation. Mitch Darrell does a great job with the balance of all three aspects.
More EP Review:
Right out the gate Mitch Darrell and JASXN have questions for God that I think if we are all honest may ask God the same thing. In “Where Are You God” I believe any follower of Christ can look at the world sometimes and ask where is God?
What I love about “Where Is God” though is; can that same Christian look at the world asking where is God, can they look at themselves and ask the same thing? Especially in times of self-doubt or lack of accomplishments on where you think you should be in life.
Like Mitch says, “Prayer is easy when life is breezy and nothing hard/tribulations we bellyaching like where is God?”
The next track is a collaboration with gitemjay on “Rearrange”, and it is 🔥🔥🔥!
“Not Black Enough” is my favorite on the whole EP!
To Sum It Up:
I’ve been knowing Mitch Darrell for 2 years and some change now and we have developed a great relationship. I love the growth and the direction he is going in. The talent, the drive and his hustle have always been there; but, “Self-Reflection” showed me a vulnerable side of Mitch that I had never seen!
Self-Reflection also showed me that Mitch Darrell is ready to take the next leap forward in the Christian hip hop community as one of the future leaders in the culture.
