Taking inspiration from the emotional anthems of NF, the gritty drill of the late Pop Smoke and lyricism of Eminem, whilst incorporating them into his unique blend of hard-hitting rap prowess, Connecticut-based Resilience is taking the drill scene by storm. ‘Opp Pack’ is the enticing new single from the Korean-American rapper, following up on July’s ‘Scar’ which gained serious heat with over 150,000 streams and high-profile support from renowned publication Clash Magazine.
Opening with illuminating strings, hard-hitting basslines and alarming effects, ‘Opp Pack’ is a forward thinking, cut-throat drill affair. Resilience’s trademark and ever-on-point bars flawlessly float around the track whilst unveiling another high-powered release from the blossoming rapper.
“It is a reflection of my reality, the Drill scene can be very competitive and confrontational. Like a lot of my music , this is a way to channel that back to overcome that anger, aggression, and clap back at everyone who has something to say about you, my opps.” – Resilience
Resilience’s lyrics serve up his reflections upon experiences of love, loss, betrayal, street life and struggles with mental health, all of which have shaped him into a stronger, wiser person and a well-rounded recording artist. Sometimes in his feelings and sometimes all-out aggressive, the man behind the mask is always able to find his lane within the scene.
