Elcee – Painless (Prod. Nii) [Audio]

Toronto, ON – It’s that time of the week again: #SoundCloudSunday. Every Sunday our dude Elcee (from the JetPacks crew) releases a new single as he leads up to his major project launch in July. This week’s single is entitled “Painless.” And it was produced by Nii.

Elcee vibes out on Nii’s beat and drops some thought-provoking bars about the importance of accepting and acknowledging our flaws. And then he drives home the importance of using said acceptance to face our flaws head-on without fear and without pain. Hence the title “Painless.” Check it below.


Elcee – Painless (Prod. Nii) [Audio] -

Elcee gets pretty real on here, too. Like when he explains that he’s never sold drugs, and then refers to himself as a “geek” and a “nerd.” Don’t misread that, though. Elcee wasn’t a naive youth, or anything. He learned to disassociate himself from the drug culture after learning from the experiences of one of his close family members.

It’s almost as though Elcee uses this track to come to terms with his own shortcomings; a practice-what-you-preach, of sorts. He approaches his setbacks with a painless mindset, and puts them out in the open for all of us to see. He’s just unapologetically being Elcee.
