Levi Carter is the kind of artist who doesn’t need to release new music too often in order to turn heads. Rather, his naturally charismatic, boss mentality grabs attention without ever having to reach for it, marking one of many reasons why the Bronx native has become such a promising force in rap over the past few years. Today, Carter is back on Lyrical Lemonade with a brand new night-visioned release, “Sophisticated Intellect.”

Backed by a chilling, hard-nosed beat, this ominous offering keeps it straight to the point, detailing the events and attitudes that have made Carter the man he is today. In the visuals, adding a dimension of imagery to this menacing release, Carter holds a balloon for a majority of the video, acting as a point of contrast between the lyrics and the accompanying scenery. With this, the creative direction visually is seamlessly on par with the impressive sonic direction, making “Sophisticated Intellect” an all-around must-watch and must-listen.

That said, all signs are pointing up for Levi Carter, and based on the stone-cold attitude that his latest release embodies, it’s clear that he’s not playing games on his ascent to the top. Check out “Sophisticated Intellect” at the link below and let us know what you think in the comments!
