Renelle 893’s debut album ‘Art Thief’ is OUT NOW on High Focus Records.

Thank you to everyone who pre-ordered the project AND to those who have already grabbed a ticket for the official ‘Art Thief’ Launch Party, it is shaping up to be a classic.

In celebration of the album release, we’ve dropped a brand new video for ‘The World Don’t Like You’; single #5 from the LP and another shining example of Renelle’s brilliant relationship with album producer Bay29.

Citing Steve Jobs’ famous use of Picasso’s “Good artists copy, great artists steal” quote as central to the concept, ‘Art Thief’ is the culmination of Renelle’s wide-eyed appreciation of the river of influences that feed into the music he makes. From the trials and tribulations of life in the big smoke, to the grandiose cultural references that contribute to his style, the album is a triple distilled example of taking cues from the world and making them your own.

Produced by Bay29 and with guest appearances from CLBRKSIlliterate and HF’s own Nelson Dialect, ‘Art Thief’ is Renelle’s best attempt (to date) of transcending the rap game; this notion best represented in the album artwork which pays homage to Caravaggio‘s ‘St. Jerome Writing‘, casting Renelle as both creator and masterpiece.
