This song is about the harsh realization that things change, and being rigid about that change, can hold you back from moving forward.
A friend of mine once told me that music is like gravity; it always has & always will exist all around us in nature, but in order to test the effects of gravity, you need an object. I believe that humans are the object or medium for music. At least, that's how I've always felt about my relationship with music.
the process of writing my last album Out of Left Field. I was withering down my options on producers for my music, hence the title "Then There Were Two". I talk about my producer Maddfrequency and Nico from Sweetspot studio pushing me to my lyrical limits and I am also talking to the love of my life, her name is Hip Hop.
I’ve always known that Life is a journey. Mine was to California where I came to focus on my dreams. When I came to Los Angeles, I was fortunate enough to meet many stars from the Golden Era of Hollywood. I was the youth they once were as they shared their stories with me. I found the romance of the West and indulged in the intoxicating past of the West Coast left there to be discovered. These are my stories in the Den of Ashes.
Being a US veteran gives you training in focus and clarity on who you are as a person, you then become a person of intense action and when I perform I bring that, when I write people feel that and so does the producer I work with. People will find this song relatable, honest, raw but inspirational because my entire album is the essence on how hip hop can save you and give you hope where there may not be any.
