Emilio Rojas is a talented rapper that refuses to let his influence and voice go to waste. His recently released EP titled Life Got In The Way is the work of an artist who is aware of his surroundings and is determined to help those around him. The highest art is the art that can not only impact people’s minds but also their hearts. Emilio Rojas’ newest work is nothing short of heartfelt and sincere.
Rojas is the son of a Venezuelan immigrant father and an American mother. This background has led to Rojas constantly searching for an understanding of himself but also of the world around him. While his father was absent he was the one that truly instilled the love of music within Rojas.
The new release Life Got In The Way is both vulnerable and assertive, both intended for the issues of the world and searching for answers for himself. The message is pointed and strong but the music is just as engaging and interesting. Emilio Rojas once again showcases his fluid lyricism and his mastery of effortless blend rap, trap, and latin influences are on full display.

Life Got in the Way
Emilio Rojas is aware of the burden of the artists, the burden to create work that makes one think but also makes one feel. He does not shy away from it, just the opposite, taking that manifesto full on. Rojas with his intelligence and his voice is changing the way that we interact with each other. Whether that be immigrants, people who view the world differently than us, or those that look differently than us. For these reasons his music is relevant, poignant, and necessary for our present day and it will be only more exciting to see what Emilio Rojas has to say in the future.
