about

There were and are GIANTS in my life who have inspired me and helped me to become a person I'm today. "SHOULDERS OF GIANTS" is a song of appreciation, dedicated for those who, in the midst of trouble, lives like a Giant.
살면서 감사할게 정말 많네요, 어려움속에도 "인생의 거인들"로 살아가는 사람들에게 이노래를 바칩니다. (Isaiah 41:10)

A big shout-out to Substantial and Steph the Sapphic Songstress for being a huge part of this track. They both are great to work with, please check out their websites.

Track Name: Shoulders of Giants (ft. Substantial, Steph the Sapphic Songstress)
Verse 1
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
Like Stevie
No wonder we call that the real.
Believe me.
I’m as strong as foundation built
Beneath me

Hook
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)

Verse2:
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 shit
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
