My newest single “Talk” addresses the way I feel about people finally beginning to come across my music on a daily basis, and moreover, how it is received from those who were once skeptical of me, or continue to be today. I’ve never been one to live or die on the words of others, and honestly doing this would be impossible if I did. Whether it’s fake gangsters in Queen Creek, Arizona (WHICH HAS THE HIGHEST AVERAGE HOUSEHOLD INCOME IN THE FUCKING STATE) claiming I’m stepping on their “territory” by mentioning MY hometown within my music, or hourly-wage lifers criticizing how I choose to represent MY brand, none of it matters. I’m me, and I fuckin’ like me.
In all honesty, I wrote this song in one late night/early morning. I was musicless (relative to what I normally have stashed away), and I had just been offered a spot to shoot a video with the videographer for Arizona native and viral rapper “Futuristic”. I was feeling the pressure, to say the least, but with my back against the wall, the song came out perfectly. It turned out to be a fucking seamless version of what I pictured it would be in my mind during the writing process, which almost never happens. The recording/mixing process took all of one day and night before I sent it off to Brandon Menace (@bmenace on Instagram) for his take on what we should do for the video, and later the next day we began brainstorming a bit on conceptual ideas. That night, we nailed down a date, time, and a few locations to go to that he had shot at previously with his “Sheeshworld” Gang, which turned out just being a cool experience in general and is something I won’t forget anytime soon.
Five hours later, the footage was in.
Fast forward two weeks pretty much to the day, and the video was in.
“Talk”, if you ask me, is my best work yet. I’m excited to see how it is received and I’m even more excited to see the interaction dB Music will receive as a result of the video.
You can find the video on my youtube channel, or in a few different places throughout the website.
