This is my new single, "Shoulders of Giants" featuring Substantial and Stephy the Sapphic Songstress.
I'm inspired by those who have pushed and motivated me to be a better person and I stand on their shoulders. (Isaiah 41:10).
Thanks to Substantial and Steph the Sapphic Songstress for lifting up the track with their talent. Such a blessing for me to work with you.
Hope you enjoy the song.

I stand tall 'cause I'm on the shoulders of giants
Stand alone like a calm soul in a riot
Studying the ways of the bold & defiant
Who never chose to be silent
Played the role of a lion
Feeding those totally reliant
On their wealth of wit instead of gold or some diamonds
In a world known to be cold and it's violent
I'm marching with Martin overthrowing tyrants
Music up loud 'til it's roarin' like sirens
Now they say my music is known for inspiring
Maybe that Jun's with me and the spirit of Miles and Marley
Or Parker's lyrical style that haunts me
Plus I'm studying Nas, Com & Jill
So I can make music it's hard not to feel
No wonder we call that the real.
I'm as strong as foundation built
If I have reached,
What seems to be the highest peak (It was on your shoulders)
Though I was weak
You showed just how far I could see (And the journey's not over)
Me alone these accolades ain't meant for
The man that I am is largely due to my mentors
I try to do what I was sent for
A long list of people should be sharing this splendor. Raise them
Glasses if you help raise him, amazing.
Ask this if Jun didn't praise him would you play them
"Classics" or would you just label him average
I ain't one to debate with my maker what the path is
I just thank him for the opportunity
And for folks like J Dilla who influenced me
More than musically he did it thru his illness
Still inspired to create though he was real sick
Thanked his momma when I met her man, that's real ***
You ain't worthy of respect if you don't feel this
To my giants/heros God bless
I'll carry the torch while carrying who got next
