"It's a lot harder than it seems. When you're on that stage with a bottled water and a dream." Those are the lyrics that epitomizes the song 'Bottled Water' by Skypp. Bottled Water is the second single from Skypp's new album, JAFFE; which released June 24th. In an interview with Indianapolis' DJ Nava, Skypp says, "In the song, the stage is a symbol of your platform. It doesn't matter if you're a musician, comedian, model, hair stylist, athlete, teacher etc. The bottle of water is a symbol of your faith. That's all we have until it gets better. It's about rising to the occasion. No one knows what we go through and no one has to know. Make it look effortless. It's not for everyone so if you're going to do it you have to do it right and set that example. That's the message that I'm sending."
On this episode of the Sum'n To Say podcast we are joined by the incomparable DJ Wally Sparks to talk about his roots here in Atlanta and his epic R&B party The Groove. Wally also opines about the nature of "fickle" music fans. Is NYC still the mecca of hip-hop? Can meccas move? We dive into that topic as well. Also, Soulja Boy is a political activist (not really, but kinda?)
