I've been listening to "Day Off" for a couple of days now. I'll put the track on and then pull up the email that MoShadee sent me. I'm listening to him rhyme. I'm reading what he has written. I can’t quite figure out what to say about the track and I don't want to take anything away from his words so I'm just going to share the email with you.
"I called out of work one day this past week. My vibes were all off, energy wasn't right. Sometimes I feel as people we have to step back and collect ourselves when things aren't feeling right. That's what I did. In that time, “Day Off” was created. Enjoy."
This is a fantastic example of how we all need a little disconnect every now and then. It's important that we take a step back and analyze the situation when we feel things are not how they should be. Moving forward is key, but sometimes despite our direction being forward we might end up having to backtrack because we ignored how we were truly feeling. Listen to yourself and forget about taking shortcuts. Be in it — life — for the long haul.
MoShadee goes over J Dilla’s “On The 1” and it’s Creestal with the scratches. CM Jones continues to impress me and I cannot wait for the new project to be released. Details to come soon.
