Da’ T.R.U.T.H. ‘Vet’ Album Review

Da’ T.R.U.T.H.

Da’ T.R.U.T.H. is an elder musical statesman of sorts these days, a status that’s reflected in the title of his new EP, Vet, that also kicks off an upcoming series. Short for “veteran,” Vet finds the lifer redefining his artistic priorities, taking the emphasis away from sales, streams and awards and turning it towards taking creative risks, and ultimately, straight up ministry.

Themes of personal, professional and spiritual growth abound, as does the idea of leaving behind a “Legacy,” though perhaps the strongest point of appeal is Da’ T.R.U.T.H.’s widest examples of experimentation thus far in a respected career that dates back to the early 2000s. Though he never fully steers away hip-hop, there are loads of acoustic guitars, chilled out beats and soulful flavors for an all-around mature sound that still manages to pack cross-generational appeal.
