Myke Towers is giving fans something to lyke…
The 27-year-old Puerto Rican rapper, singer and songwriter has released his third studio album Lyke Mike.
On the opening track, Towers drops a dramatic trap where he simply tells his haters: “Look at me now.”
Lyke Mike, an ode to basketball, el barrio and, his biggest inspiration, Michael Jordan, is a comeback to the sound and lyrics that made Towers a household name: the underground rap scene.
An ultra-personal production, with an album cover in the front of his childhood home in Puerto Rico, Towers narrates his struggles and successes as heard in “Cuando Me Ven,” “Joven Leyenda,” “Roncarme,” “Niveles” and “Maldita Envidia,” to name a few.
Unlike his sophomore set Easy Money Baby, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard‘s Top Latin Albums chart, Lyke Mike steps away from commercial reggaeton and Latin R&B sounds and navigates the roots: hip-hop, trap, and drill.
“The lyrics I wrote come with the same amount of heart I put into them when I first started on this journey,” Towers expressed in a statement.
Collaborations on Lyke Mike include Mikey Woodz, Ñengo Flow, Jon Z and Sahir.
