Zach Taylor – Cool If I Tried [Audio]
Calgary, AB – Calgary up-and-comer Zach Taylor recently hit us with his latest single release titled “Cool If I Tried.” For the record – Zach is only 17 years old. So he’s still finding his flow and delivery, and all of that. But for a cat who’s still in his teens, Zach is ridiculously self-aware.
This song is a bit of a nod to Shad – it’s very self-deprecating. Zach delivers a thoughtful joint about being supremely uncool. He also manages to subtly poke fun at cats who try way too hard to achieve cool status. Check this line: “On Instagram/ Don’t post much about the studio/ But when I do/ Gotta use hashtag: #DrizzyFlow.”
The track was produced by Epistrabeats, and engineered by Jay Spence. It’s an upbeat beat, that is also slightly reminiscent of Shad. Shad would rap over this beat.
Towards the end of the joint, Zach gives himself a bit of a roast: “I’m awkward. I’m not normal at all.” At this point in the song, I was getting worried, and thinking I was going to need to give Zach a strongly-worded pep talk about the importance of self confidence, and stuff.
But Zach was two steps ahead of me: “I have an idea/ Why don’t we all be awkward together?/ And just jam out to some good music.” Well spoken, Zach. Word to that. Dude is only 17 years old and he’s already figured out how to keep his music real.
