Returning with a powerful message of self-affirmation, Australian artist L-FRESH The LION returns with “Born to Stand Out.” Driven by substantial percussions and self-assured attitude, L FRESH attacks the track with erudite lyricism. Tracing a personal journey and recounting on challenges, the rapper takes listeners on a contemplative account from start to finish. Largely inspired by his surroundings, L-FRESH the LION gives a glimpse at the larger project to come, with the lyricist paying ode to his hometown.
As L-FRESH the LION shares, “This song is about having confidence in yourself and not giving power to other people’s perceptions of you. About 4-5 years ago, I bought this dope hoodie that had the line ‘why blend in when you’re born to stand out’ on it (shoutout to TurbanInc). When I copped it, I rocked it heavy until it got worn out. That line sums up a mentality I’ve had for a long time. When I realised the power that comes from having confidence in yourself versus giving weight to outsider’s perceptions of you, I found a type of freedom. ‘Born To Stand Out’ builds on that line.” With an unbreakable edge and underdog mentality, L-FRESH the LION is the latest figure to represent South West Sydney’s emerging scene.
