J Doze – “MAY 23rd” single
“My mama was deported on this Monday. At this rate am I gon’ make it? ‘Til this Sunday, only thing that keep a ni^^a goin’—faith in God, that and my wife. My purchased home and two dogs. F**k I’m blessed. You would think this type of news would have me stressed, nah. They just put another f**kin’ staple in my chest. Life is taking shape, I don’t even gotta flex. This is based on true events.” – lyrics
‘May 23rd’ finds J Doze spitting memorable bars about God, losing his job, and navigating life as an independent artist.
The likable tune contains a relatable storyline, conversational rap vocals, and hypnotic instrumentation scented with a traditional hip-hop aroma.
“Do I need gas or the lean? No, just gasoline got me speeding back to what this life actually means.”
“‘May 23rd’ is the recognition that all great art comes from tough situations. As soon as everything started falling apart, I knew it was for the better because that was what brought me back to music.” – J Doze
