This is a cover song. But the twist is, this is a cover song of a song you’ve never heard. So if a cover song is recorded and we’ve never heard the original, does the original even exist? It gets deep. I’ll let them explain further.
A Cover of song you may never hear from an album that may never come out. Originally written for BlacRoc 2 by Dan Auerbach and Chuck Inglish years ago in Brooklyn New York the song found its way into the hands of the O’my’s via there producers Blended Babies and ended up being covered by them circa the “Chicago Style” sessions.

“When I originally made the beat, it was just a main melody loop of strings and keys with some programmed drums over it. Sonically, I was inspired by Raekwon & Ghostface’s song “Heaven & Hell”, but I wanted to make it an introspective record about a hustler’s come up from the street life to the rap game. And as time passed, I kept going back to the beat and adding more elements. I chopped the melody up more, I played live drums over it, and I wrote a hook that I felt required a female vocalist. So I reached out to the best female vocalist I knew, Macie Stewart, formerly of the popular group Kids These Days. She came to the studio, re-worked the hook, and added some beautiful harmonies throughout. I then sent the beat to AZ, who I knew would set off the track in a classic way. He rapped from the perspective of a hustler that survived the game, did it his way, and is now living the good life. That same approach and theme continued on with Havoc of Mobb Deep and Freeway, both of whom added their own personal narrative to a day in the life of a hustler. Lastly, I orchestrated even more live instrumentation into the track with Graham Burris playing some bass guitar and some live horns at the end by Nico “Donnie Trumpet” Segal, also formerly of the group Kids These Days. Overall, the song has an epic and triumphant feel to it. I’m very happy with the way it came out. It’s one of my favorite songs on my album and I hope everyone enjoys it.”
