But this year's Eat Pray Thug is his first officially released solo album, and it offers up a bit of everything Heems brings to the table: politics, spiritualism, disco beats, swagger, self-deprecation, tales of NYC, unconventional melodies, and an ongoing search for identity in a complex world. Eat Pray Thug is about Heems' journey to self-discovery in South Asia and life as a brown-skinned man in post-9/11 America, set to (mostly) dope beats. It's clever and affecting, and another installment in what is becoming a very impressive catalog from a guy who became widely known for a song called "Combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell."
