Feelings, as you can probably tell by listening to the track, I had gone through a pretty bad break up. I was with someone who said they would never leave or hurt me but hat was a lie. So this song was pretty much me saying goodbye and that I am not chasing after her like I've always done in the past.
Purest was a freestyle that just made me feel like I was in the zone. Like I was the purest form of a rapper there is. No bullshit about guns and money or showing off jewelry or cash, but being a real emcee.
Paradise is about trying to find where you belong in life. How the people that surround us in our day to day lives that tell us our dreams are something we can't chase or achieve. It's all about finding peace inside ourselves a place that nobody can take from you. Your life is your own paradise you just got to find what it is that takes you there.
