We often look at times of struggle and pain as negative experiences, overlooking the opportunity it provides us for growth and renewal. This song is about accepting the inevitable presence of these more difficult times in our lives, and using them to bring us strength and positivity as we move forward. The track features Living Legends emcee The Grouch, who has been someone that’s embodied this type of spirit to me throughout his career.
J.Lately distinguishes himself as an emcee with his soulful style and laid back flow. A true appreciation for music along with the unique ability to put everyday life into a relatable perspective has allowed him to flourish in the local Bay Area scene and beyond. His music possesses the rare ability to make you contemplate and vibe out simultaneously, finding the perfect balance between the conscious and the stoner. Coming from the small town of Sebastopol, and having split time between Oakland and Southern California, his influences are eclectic and mesh together effortlessly to form his own individual style. A relentless drive has kept Lately on tour across the country with artists such as Zion I, Locksmith, and A-Plus of Hieroglyphics. He has released multiple solo and collaborative projects, with his most recent solo release, Be Fucking Happy, garnering the attention of many notable blogs and listeners alike.
