HipHopDX says:
"Hailing from Tacoma, Washington, Blakk Soul has had to work tirelessly to make his mark.

Managed by Little Brother MC Rapper Big Pooh, he’s had the chance to pen songs and perform background vocals for artists such as Playboi Carti, Dr. Dre, Macklemore, Anderson .Paak, Jake One and more.

The R&B/soul singer’s journey ultimately took him to Mello Music Group where he’s found a home on the imprint’s roster. Now, the gifted artist has nabbed Hip Hop vet Joell Ortiz for a new single called “Help,” which is taken from Blakk Soul’s forthcoming album Take Your Time."


"Take Your Time" is Blakk Soul's MMG debut and is as musically sophisticated and seasoned as any in the genre. The record's sultry melodies are colorful and refreshing, a dripping wet bedroom masterpiece that combines RnB, NeoSoul, and Hiphop rhythms to perfection. Step into the luxurious RnB of Blakk Soul.

Track Name: Help (feat. Joell Ortiz)
[Verse: Blakk Soul]

Why they got to make it so hard for a nigga
To build up and get it how he live
Doing what we want for a living
But if it was easy then everyone
Would be on I figure (but shit)
Is something so wrong
with everyone being on my nigga
I fuck with having us all be winners (yeah yeah)


Pace yourself
Don’t ever let your ego
Make you think you need no
Everybody needs some help

You got to pace yourself
Don’t ever let your ego
Make you think you need no
Everybody needs some help
From time to time


Take a good look in the mirror
Everybody needs some (help)
Everybody needs some (help)
Take a good look in the sky
Everybody needs some
Everybody needs some
Everybody needs some help

[Verse 2: Joell Ortiz]

Show me somebody that did it all alone
I’ll wait
See y’all just know the face
The smile that you embrace
Y’all don’t know that machine behind the scenes
Making sure everything is straight
Not to mention a
Man upstairs may we say grace
Thanks for the mistakes
Thanks for things that went great
Thanks for food on this plate
The whole room just ate
Thanks for appearing in this verse
My whole mood is straight
Okay now wait
I’m not saying I’m the king of this here jungle
But I survive like every rumble
And I’m alive if I must scuffle
Once again my friend
It’s not cause I’m the strongest slugger
It’s cause I don’t fight alone
I know that strength it comes in numbers
So if you lace them up with me
You got to lace up with my brothers
The ones in office suits and yup the ones still in the gutter
That love for one another is a must
It can’t just be all you
The most important you
Is in us


[Chorus 2x]
