The 859 (Lexington, KY) representing budding artist Elz Bentley drops a smash hometown anthem titled 859 REPRESENTER! A song about success, authenticity, obsession, & legacy!
‘859 REPRESENTER’ tells the story of ELZ BENTLEY, a Kentucky native who’s proud of where he’s from and isn’t shy about it one bit! Though it would be easy to think of this song on the surface level about the rappers success like leaving big tips at restaurants, showing off his ‘big spender’ status, etc. The song also touches on relationships, with ELZ questioning why people or he himself & the city he is from ( as he took to Instagram to explain) are so obsessed with each other. I didn’t think about it that way at first but if you listen close he details why he’s so enticed with the locality of 859 but also why he needs to leave. The lyrics emphasize the importance of staying real and true to oneself, while also discussing building a legacy for future generations as well! Stand up 859 & KENTUCKY, this is one to be proud of!
