Sir the Baptist is back with new music. Today he drops the title track to his upcoming album, Saint or Sinner, due May 12.
“Miracles, here we go, go on get it/Packing two-seaters with four women/Water the D’Usse like go on hit it/Instagram it like you can get it,” raps Sir.
The track features a different sound from his previous few records such as “Raise Hell,” “Wake Up” and “What We Got.”
“Saint or Sinner is the eulogy fame,” he tells XXL. “It’s where I almost let fame kill me because I didn’t have weird hair, tattoos, talk down on women and because I wasn’t this ‘typical trap rapper’. I lost all my friends over money. And all the new friends only wanted money. So this project is the product the process coming into an industry and I hope my first piece change for future artists and for the culture as a whole.”
He adds, “‘Saint or Sinner’ is a song about the struggle between where you come from and what you’re trying to be in hip-hop culture. Not everybody in the church is a saint. Not every man in the trap is a sinner. This song reflects the reality each dynamic.”
Saint or Sinner will be a 14-track LP that is written and produced mainly by Sir himself. The guest features including Brandy, Michelle Williams, Keke Wyatt, among others.
To celebrate the release his upcoming album, Sir will be hitting the road for The Revival World Tour, which will hit cities like New York, Paris, Los Angeles, Chicago, London, New Orleans, Nashville, Austin and more. Peep the dates and title track below.
