Latrell James’ ‘The Button’ has the kind of ‘Dead Presidents II’ piano loop that sounds reflective even before he starts rapping.  The Boston MC/producer adorns the thoughtful track [which is taken from his forthcoming album, ‘Twelve’] with an exceptionally stylish video shot by Jose Rodriguez.  The man himself says: “‘The Button’ represents a time in my life where I couldn’t decide if it was myself destroying my potential or the places I was raised. Each verse points the blame at my surroundings. The visual is an ode to where I spent 18 years of my life.”  Stream below via YouTube.
