Terrence Spectacle is a talented hip-hop artist from Dallas, TX. He’s back and better than ever, ready to showcase his refined style and sound. His latest release “A Letter From Belize” is a two-song track beginning with “Tell Me Lies” and moving into “Best Guy”.
“Tell Me Lies” kicks up with a mellow beat and the mood is chilled from the offset. Upon this, the hook strikes with a gentle contemporary twang but a more notable level of heart and purpose. Following that, the verses proceed to offer details and personal intricacies that lay bare a certain level of realness and vulnerability. While Terrence is never afraid to get deep and genuine with regard to feelings and life in his music, this particular release seems in some ways like the most open and meaningful yet. It feels directed specifically at a significant other, and it feels deeply considerate at the same time.
The very concept of balance, of needing to find that in order to achieve peace and to re-connect with those who matter, is something rarely pondered in modern hip hop; or music in general.
“Best Guy” offers a fine fusion of hip hop, electronica, and fascinating, poetic lyricism. Terrence even structures his vocal performance in a refreshing way. It’s a strong way to go out, and it reminds you of the strengths that make up his best songs released to date. “A Letter From Belize” is a step in a slightly different direction, but as always, a crisp and professional, enjoyable beat, worked upon with style by an artist who knows how to master his bars and write songs that emerge as authentic, engaging, and relatable.

Hey there Terrence Spectacle! Welcome to BuzzMusic! “A Letter From Belize” is a category transforming! Tell us how you came to produce this track!
Hey, thanks for having me! The track came about overtime after I digested some hardcore truths about myself and some traumas I’d experienced, really a series of self-reflections sort of implanted the themes in me. The next time I went into the studio with new material pre my “Traverse” album release these were the new elements and notions I carried.
“Tell Me Lies” is definitively lively, with such an eclectic, yet modern take on production. How did you intend to connect with your listeners with this particular track?!
I want my fans to connect with me on a personal level, and all my friends know personally I’m just an avid truth seeker, and can be brutally honest. Tell Me Lies is that self-truth, encapsulated in just under four minutes.
Tell us more about the meaning of the lyrics within your “Best Guy”!
Best Guy is really the other side of the truth-seeking aspect I hold so dear. To me, it’s more like a heart to heart conversation than a song. I’m legitimately stating facts, all the same as if you and I were speaking face to face.
What would you say is the most useful piece of criticism you’ve received thus far within your career? Do you typically take criticism to your advantage?
Keep working, and until you’ve mastered your craft; KEEP on practicing.
I can be a bit of a perfectionist so I try to stay open-minded when receiving criticism so that I’m not too harshly swayed with the influence of other people’s take on my music. However, I do enjoy it when things are brought into a new light or perspective and can be improved upon. Not being perfect, means I can still get better and I’m content with that.
It was a treat being able to showcase “A Letter From Belize” on BuzzMusic! We can’t wait to see what else you have in store for us as listeners! What’s the next goal for you artistically within the music world, now that you’ve just released a new single?
I’m here to show face and shake shit up. This is another intro into the next chapter of my story, and I want to expose my music and myself as much as I can, and genuinely own all the territory I can cover. I appreciate you all for having me, thanks again for premiering A Letter from Belize! -
