Taylor Bennett’s latest project ‘The American Reject’ hit all streaming platforms this past Tuesday (5/28). The eight track project, while brief, features a star studded list of features, in addition to quite a few bangers.
Chance the Rapper, Ty Dolla $ign, Mr. Hudson, Serayah and Bianca Shaw are among the various artists featured on the project. The album itself is the third installment in a series of projects, that all touch on the idea of self-acceptance in distinct but equally powerful ways. The previous installment, ‘Be Yourself,’ released last summer.
The cover art for this particular project speaks volumes to the theme of self-acceptance. It features the American flag as the backdrop to several people, of varying age, gender and race, all staring boldly at the camera, as Bennett, the large center portrait, looks up. It would appear that Bennett is trying to signify that beyond looking yourself in the mirror, you have to look higher in order to fully understand the world, and your place in it. In accepting that there are things beyond your control, you can accept responsibility for the things within your control, namely, yourself.
