"Ely’s ‘Legend’ is an anthem for anyone who’s tired of playing people’s games."

Ely’s ‘Legend’ is a perfect example of what can happen when the music is given space to breathe in a hip-hop track.

Under the guise of relationship troubles, this song is a tired, desperate plea for genuineness and honesty between people, and an attack on any kind of fake or fickle love. His voice dripping with weariness, Ely opens the song with “Don’t call me a legend when I’m gone/ if you don’t love me move on,” a line filled with the intent that encapsulates the message he’s trying to send.

Bossa brings in the rap with a similar kind of weariness to his voice, but with a hint of frustration that comes from not having the time or energy to play people’s games. There’s a musicality to his rapping that is wonderfully supported by the sparse piano in the background which grounds his words.

‘Legend’ is a well-crafted, thought out track that’ll hit home for anyone who’s trying to cut the fake people out of their lives and grow into the person they want to be.
