Holliday makes the most of each and every second of Leslie’s nearly three-minute runtime. From the start, the track strikes you with its structural prowess and a distinct variety of flows and ideas. It then continues to keep you intrigued and even enthralled all the way through..
Originally from Baltimore, Maryland, “Holliday” is more than just a rapper; he is also an up-and-coming musician in the music industry who lives in Atlanta and works as an independent uprising artist. He is a multi-talented young artist that primarily records hip-hop and rap. Leslie is his most recent release as a tribute to his mother and she passed away when he was 8 years old. For many of us, our mothers are one of the most important people in our lives. And yet, when it comes time to tell them how much we love and appreciate them, it’s easy to get tongue-tied. But Holliday has found a way to capture the way we all feel about our moms in his song.
The fact that the song’s hook has an immediately remembered and pleasurable groove adds fuel to the fire. Though it appears infrequently – the music is about three minutes long in all – it strikes the spot and ensures you get into it and retain it for the next time. In between all of this, there are lines that demonstrate an absolute performance — far more than a lyrical interpretation. Holliday brings the track to life, and that breath lasts till the climax.
At the same time, Holliday’s performance bursts forth, drenched in passion and love for his mom. You don’t doubt the mass or force of its lines or the vocal style; you can hear the aim and intensity behind it all, which contrasts with the relatively delicate quality of the distant cinematic soundscape. A single listen is all that is required for the music Leslie to leave an impression.
