B. Aull – “Not for Nothing” featuring Sydney
“You think I’m doing this to spite you, nah, I like you. But music’s my religion, you’re looking at a disciple. This could be my one shot, loading up the rifle. Best advised to step aside, don’t stifle. I done really came a long way, up early, working after hours, power through a long day. I love to come home and see you in that lingerie.” – lyrics
‘Not for Nothing’ offers an optimistic and introspective take on the challenges of balancing relationships and goals. The bubbly tune tells an interesting tale of a young man who has his eyes on the prize. Apparently, he has other obligations like a girl and their budding relationship. But he’s super-focus and determined to use his precious time to turn his dreams into a reality.
‘Not for Nothing’ contains a relatable storyline, conversational raps, and lush instrumentation flavored with hip-hop, electronic, and urban-soul elements.
“It’s kind of like having the realization that no matter who you are, friend, family, significant other… you’re important to me. But so are my dreams and I need to focus on my dreams at all costs. Sometimes you have to do whatever it takes to accomplish your goals and the people closest to you need to understand that you aren’t deliberately trying to push them away. You need to make sacrifices to make your dreams a reality, and the people closest to you need to support you pushing towards that.” – B. Aull
