“Trying to make a song, press it and profit from it/ Hopin’ it sell like crack/
Albums leaking for free/ Hope it don’t sell like rap”
To keep it one hundred, songs with generic titles like “Dreams 2014” turn me off. Before pressing play, we all know exactly what type of wide-eyed, uprising raps to expect. Yet, when I heard Jabee do just that on his recently-released Everything Was Beautiful And Nothing Hurt mixtape, he justified the generic concept.
Now, this candid 1984 Studios-directed video furthers the OKC rapper’s technical mic skills and humble confidence, positioning him alongside family and friends, making the song seem human and even more engaging.
