The Sun's Tirade in 2016 was the Tennessee-bred rapper's last solo release.

 Isaiah Rashad returns with a new track "Why Worry" after a four-year hiatus.

The release produced by Toronto producer Crooklyn follows Ab-Soul’s “Dangerookipawaa Freestyle.” Back in 2016, the Tennessee-bred artist rolled out The Sun’s Tirade, his last full-length solo release. His latest track provides a peak at what fans can expect from his speculated third studio album, The House Is Burning

In a tweet he mentioned the loosie would possibly be arriving before his new release. “i think some shit from the album. depends on gettin’ outside. if not another loosie doe.”

Last June, Rashad posted a few details about the alleged album including the title and also previewed music over on his Instagram Live. Most recently in March he shared additional music reportedly from The House Is Burning.

“Why Worry” takes on a mellow mood and in it Rashad discusses stress from family and friends and how he’s been coping with it. One standout line directly addresses this, “Oh, that's your family, yo man?/ When? How could you stand 'em?/ He always try take advantage of a nigga.”

Later in the track, he digs a bit into his feelings on what it takes to reach the top amidst ongoing conflict “You can't reach the top and everybody/ I got things in order, who important/ You ain't Uncle Bobby, or my cousin Risha/ Please don't lean on me, bitch, I'm vibin'/ Please don't pretend, can't depend on me.”

The House Is Burning could be slated to arrive at some point this year. Over on Genius we peeped that the music site already has a tentative tracklist filled with loosies.
