FAREWELL SUMMER is the 2nd commercial effort from 18-year-old rapper & producer Levi Hinson. Released almost 3 years after his first album Faceless, FAREWELL SUMMER speaks to a long period of both personal and artistic growth in a surprisingly short amount of time. Clocking in at just under 25 minutes, the album tackles topics such as substance abuse, family problems, lost love, and mental health. FAREWELL SUMMER’s title and concept come from several conversations Hinson had with friends and family about the idea of letting go of one’s youth and innocence in the wake of adulthood and its subsequent changes. The album’s message and purpose can be summarized in one phrase, taken from the album’s last track “OLDER”: “Self-reliance and defiance of my youth”.
