“NightCap” is just one of the stellar singles to feature on up and coming Rap artist Tae Spears’ latest album “If I Can Be Honest”. It’s safe to say that the answer to the question posed in his album title is irrefutably yes. Contained within the lyrics to NightCap is one of the most uncensored narratives I’ve potentially ever heard versed in a Hip Hop track. To add even more weight to the track, Tae teamed up with Monique LaShay Spears who brought even more visceral emotion to the track. The lyrics depict some of the crueller realities behind modern relationships which the beat follows an ambiently thrashing Trap melody to amp up the conflicting angst in NightCap.

Hailing from Milwaukee, hip-hop artist Tae Spears starting rapping when he saw the impact it had on young people and hasn’t stopped since. The Midwest emcee recently released his latest project and although it’s only a six track EP, If I Can Be Honest quickly pulls you in and holds your attention for its entire 18 minute duration.

Though many will undoubtedly take the “Parental Advisory Warning” and the language that goes along with it, as a reason to write off this album and possibly even Tae Spears as a “Christian” Hip Hop artist, those claims aren’t unfounded. I will argue that it’s the strong language on If I Can Be Honest that evokes the pain and the hurt that’s necessary to drive home Tae’s point.

Beyond the music itself, which is a taste of the classic hip-hop many rap purists long for nowadays, If I Can Be Honest shines a light on an important issue I believe is plaguing the world at large and finding its way into the church. This issue is how lust rears its ugly head, cripples the hearts of many man (and some women) and destroys marriages. In our technologically advanced society, temptation is one DM slide away and Tae is open and honest about it; “marriage will never cure lust/ so all the issues that affected me is now affecting us,” he raps.

From beginning to end, If I Can Be Honest is bold, raw and painful to listen to in some instances. The resentment and regret seeps through this project. On the soulfully sampled “Hourglass,” Tae says,

“I want my wife back/ but [man] sometimes we stray too far to ever come back/ but I understand that nothing is impossible for God/ so I’m praying hard he changes her heart/ but if not still heal mine/show me I’m not bound to what I was/show me I’m forgiven/show me I’m covered by the blood.”

Only God knows if Tae’s marriage can come back from this, but maybe If I Can Be Honest will serve as a warning and encouragement to those having the same struggles as Tae. Maybe husbands and wives will fight to find complete contentment and satisfaction in one another before they are in a position to fight to get them back. - Vince Porter

"Tae Spears - Night Cap (Music Video)"

Today’s submission is from the talented Tae Spears and when y’all hear this...whew chile...can we say relatable?!

Tae Spears has created a beautiful introspective story in his latest video titled "Night Cap." This is a great display of romance and lust with clear vivid imagery, soft sensual lighting and a close visual of Tae and his main character played to be his wife. Coupled with lyrics that flow through a male's internal rationale of losing the one he loved through his own bad decision making. How many fellas can relate?

All in all, this video is definitely one with amazing replay value, thanks to the combo of Tae Spears and Damien Blue.

The production of this video is top notch and really proves how hard Milwaukee goes in the music scene. Keep up the great work because you got us all watching. *prayer hands emoji*
