Businessmen in the West
Produced by Prospek
Directed by Ambitious Art x Doon
Businessmen in the West is a project of mine I've worked on for a while. I never knew when would be quite the appropriate time to release it. The recent tragic events around the world including my hometown of New Orleans with the shooting at Bunny Friend Park which left 17 victims gave me the courage to get this message out.
The record came about one late night in a studio session with underground heavy-hitter, Prospek. We were in the middle of working on something and then he wanted us to hear what he had worked on earlier with a live band. I thought it was dope, we went back to the other song. He let me leave with it. It was different for me, so I wanted to come different. I sat on it. I did the joint maybe some months later, sent it to him, he thought it was dope.
Theres people who've contacted me feeling like if I'm pursuing a music career I should only make music like this, while I also have critics telling me I shouldn't make this kind of music at all. Truth be told, I was moved to do what I did. I believe if you're doing music, you should be doing it because something inside of you has to come out.
So this is my open letter to the powers-that-be, I hope this song doesn't fall on deaf ears.
Happy Holidays & stay safe everyone
