“I did a show for 50 people, still got the chills…”
Often times without fail, certain songs show face at the absolute perfect time. Scotty ATL’s visual for his latest record, the DJ Mr. Rogers-produced “I Could’ve Gave Up,” hits home personally on levels I’ll divulge at some point in the future. The lesson, however, sticks to the ribs regardless of who we are and where we’re at in life.
Chasing a dream is the toughest challenge we’ll ever embark on.
Scotty’s journal is filled with his own narrative of events from former rapping partners joining the Navy to just believing in his goal of impacting people with his music. The same goal, by the way, that has carried him all the way to Sway’s legendary morning show.
More than anything, “Could’ve Gave Up” goes to prove what a little faith in oneself can produce. That sentence is “pot calling the kettle black” more than you’ll ever know.
