Derek Minor (formerly PRo) delivers his third installment of the PSA series. Production ranges from soulful blues samples, heavy bass-lines and warm strings to hard hitting 808’s, looming organs, and energetic brass sections. Lyrically, Minor takes the listener on an intense journey through his perspective, struggles, and triumphs.
PSA Vol. 3 boasts features including: Sho Baraka, Canon, Lecrae and more.
Derek Minor touches on many interesting topics ranging from drugs, the trap, and grindin’, to marriage, family, and the industry. On the cut “I’m Focused” Minor provides a southern anthem for people out grindin’. “Sad Condishun” dives into the hardships that people encounter and must overcome in a cold world. Minor gets introspective on the single “Get Up” as he discusses his struggle with making a tangible impact versus lip service. Every track comes with a concept that unfolds over a dope instrumental. A shining example is Minor’s “Riddle Me This” where he gives a first- hand account of how drugs and violence actually affect the hood. The song uncovers the contradictions between what is portrayed on the radio and the reality of drug dealing and use. Minor also uses the song to challenge emcees to be authentic and stop portraying a false persona.
