Phora - Love Is Hell

Phora isn’t one to shy away from his emotions—the Anaheim rapper/singer has always worn his heart proudly on his sleeve (or rather, on his sleeve tattoo). But while you might expect the guy who titled his previous album Yours Truly Forever to be a romantic optimist, Love Is Hell wades into the murkier depths of relationships. Over moody, contemplative beats, Phora references Romeo and Juliet and tries in vain to numb the pain of heartbreak, with assists from R&B bleeding-hearts like 6LACK and Tory Lanez. But he remains a hopeless romantic throughout the ups and downs: On the Trippie Redd-featuring title track, he pledges, “I’d rather fight demons with you than live amongst the angels without you.”
