When I started this project, I didn’t know what direction the songs were going to go in.  I try to keep my songs upbeat and vibrant, but since this series is called “Rapping My Life,” there’s always a chance I’ll end up making a song about a serious event going on in my life.

And so it is with this week. There was SO much stuff that went on with me this week that I could’ve made a song about. I decided on a topic early in the week and recorded it, then shot the video for it Thursday morning. I was all set to go with the song – an upbeat jam about… well, more on that later – and was starting to edit the video…

But then… I had gotten a call from my best friend about 2 days prior, telling me his Mom was in the hospital and it wasn’t looking good.  I checked my Facebook on Thursday, and sure enough, his Mom had passed away.

Once I found out the news… I still wanted to put out the other song I had recorded, but now it just didn’t feel right. I felt like I needed to say something to my friend about this occurrence, and I do that best in song form.

So, I wrote this song instead, “Angel Wings,” in the hopes of bringing him some comfort. It’s a FREE download, which you can get HERE.
