The hip-hop triad, Injury Reserve, brings the feels with this somber track off their latest EP, Drive It Like It’s Stolen.
Backed by a very stripped back acoustic instrumental, the song begins with Stepa J. Groggs detailing his troubles with trying to find his way in life and his struggles with growing fame. In the second verse, Ritchie with a T steps up and delivers a heartbreaking verse where he is leaving a voicemail message to his dead friend about everything that’s happened since he’s been gone and that everyone on earth still misses him.
This song makes gives off a feeling of loneliness and isolation even if you’re in a room full of people. Even if you can’t relate to the lyrics in this song personally, the song makes you feel as though you know exactly what they’re explaining and you can’t help but feel troubled yourself.
