Produced by LA producer D.C. Soulplusmind, “Blue” is a an autobiographical look at Born I Music, his origins and the tragedies and triumphs that shaped him.
The rawness and honesty of the song, the lyricism with which it is delivered, and the heavy, piano driven instrumental make “Blue” a record that connects with you instantly.
The video for “Blue” brings us in even deeper, as Born returns to the Autumn Walk neighborhood on Bel Pre Rd where he grew up in Silver Spring MD, retracing his steps, remembering the loneliness of being the only child of immigrant parents, recalling the events that created him, and some which still haunt him.
As he preps his ‘Cash Is King’ mixtape for release later this year, NYC standout Cashflow makes things staunchly clear about where he is from, Harlem, USA.
Choosing Nas’ classic instrumental for ‘NY State Of Mind’ as the backdrop, Cashflow advises us not to forget his neighborhood’s gritty history on ‘Harlem State Of Mind’.
