I Got You


03/10/2023 Click here for Spotify or Apple Music. This is my 34th official release. “I Got You” is a song that is more personal and about my career as an artist. This song is basically a letter to my fans talking about the struggle and asking for their support. You can really help by buying a track but all my music is free on YouTube and all I’m really asking is that you share my music. You can make all the difference by recommending my music, putting it on a playlist, or requesting it to be played.


Like I said in the “Blow Me Up” post, I spend my money on production and don’t have the funds to promote so I’m really depending on you to share my music. Even if I did promote, the whole goal is for word of mouth to take over. This was also a song of righteous indignation considering my perseverance in releasing consistently for going on 3 years.


The track is just blatantly honest about my economic situation. Basically, I can’t live without you, the fan. I spend all my money on music to the point I have to pick between promotion and clothes or more production or supplements. I talk about the American economy, especially healthcare and how it has affected my life. I would have a full-time job if America had universal healthcare or if I lived in another country. The truth is I can’t afford to have a life because I spend all my money on music while I can’t work for it because I’m limited on earned income and my labor power is exploited because big pharma has the biggest lobby in Congress and lobbies for privatized healthcare. Healthcare should be a not-for-profit industry like it was before Nixon. These are the reasons I’m always on Twitter talking about how America is a POS and should go screw itself. It also has to do with inequality which is pretty well encapsulated by this rigged economy tweet.


I don’t usually sing because I don’t know how, but my producer makes me sound good. I really hope the listeners and my fans understand my plea, embrace my vulnerability, feel my message, Vibe with it, and share my tracks.


The vocals were self-recorded. The track was mixed and mastered by Sam Peters at La Luna recording studio in Kalamazoo Michigan. The beat is by ThatKidGoran. I wrote this on December 5th 2022 in about 30 to 60 minutes. This is one of those tracks I felt like I had to make about my life and Career while poverty-stricken and before any real exposure or opportunity. This is basically the song I made asking my fans for help after putting in years of work with no real reward, recognition, or attention.


You can stream or download the track wherever music is sold. Thank you for your support. Be sure to follow because new music is released every week!


You can see me talk about this blog post and next weeks release in this early Sunday Update



Lyrics:


I love ya, I need ya

I can’t live

I love ya, I need ya

I can’t live, without you


I love ya, I need ya

I can’t live

I love ya, I need ya

I can’t live, without you


This a track for the fans to help them understand

What this like for me, and how they can help

Look I left it in my raps, the stories and the path

The book goes into depth, but I’ll tell you what I lack


Support for the tracks

Like playlist ads

You didn’t even share it with your dad

Or your driver in a cab


How am I supposed to make it

When I can’t afford the craft

With the obstacles I’m faced with

I’ll tell you how I get the bag


Purchase my tracks

And I’ll reinvest the money

What I currently make is $20 monthly


They say America’s great

But I don’t see it

All these people get paid

For less than I’ve done in a season


Hard not to be bitter

Like how are they so much better than me

How did they get lucky

And I’m still struggling


I thank the fans for their support

But I’m really rather poor

So If you wanna help me win

Please go and share this with a friend

And say


I got you, I got you, I got you, just don’t quit

Keep rollin, keep rolling, keep rolling, we got this

We’re doing alright, we’re feeling okay

As long as I got you we’re doing great

I got you, I got you, I got you.


I’m on that slow grind, to grow mine

And end up with a gold mine.

But that all that depends on you

To make it shine on through


I’m never gonna make it

Unless you help with a payment

I’m poor and afflicted

With monetary restrictions so


Every dollar I spend is an economic decision

Between promotion and production

Clothes or some supplements


It must be nice, to have the money to buy

Your necessities and still have money to thrive


Bankrupting America

Is how healthcare’s designed

And it affects every part of my life


The government exploits labor power cuz their controlled by the rise

Of big business and lobbying To exploit the price

Of money in politics that creates a divide

Between left and right, when classism really the fight


So I teach them all pragmatically

To reach for truth and practically

Know what I’ve been rapping please

So my fans can rap this back to me like


I got you, I got you, I got you, just don’t quit

Keep rollin, keep rolling, keep rolling, we got this

We’re doing alright, we’re feeling okay

As long as I got you we’re doing great

Cuz I got you, I got you, I got you.


And I’ll be there for you

When you need someone to see you through


You can count on me

To bring you back up to speed

Help make you see

What you have to be


Just ask yourself and agree

To love yourself and seek

Purpose in adversity

and happiness in the journey


You listenin now, you're my boss

All this music has a cost

And if you don’t support it I’m at a loss

So let me ask you what I’m doing wrong


Frankly I don’t have the money to open shop yet

So let me ask, why don’t I got it


You could make all the difference

By just tuning in and listen’n in

Put my song on playlist

All I wanna hear US say is.


I got you, I got you, I got you, just don’t quit

Keep rollin, keep rolling, keep rolling, we got this

We’re doing alright, we’re feeling okay

As long as I got you we’re doing great

Cuz I got you, I got you, I got you.


I love ya, I need ya

I can’t live

I love ya, I need ya

I can’t live, without you


I love ya, I need ya

I can’t live

I love ya, I need ya

I can’t live, without you
