You feel the pain deep in your heart and all you want is for it to go away. You can’t make it go away so you drown it out and soon everything feels all numb. You sink in a hole and you think you are never going to come out. You miss that loved one. Will you be strong for them. Or will you sink in the quicksand and never reach your goals in memory of the one you lost?
I haven’t been feeling too much new Hip Hop lately. As a 90’s Hip Hop fan I miss the old school beat and the storytelling. When I turned on Ebgbev’s ”Numb to the Pain” for the first time I experienced a feeling I hadn’t for so long. This new track has a real story.
Ebgbev unfortunately just lost his father due to to horrible coronavirus pandemic that has changed the way the world works. This is a terrible loss and we extend our condolences to Ebgbev and his family.
After losing my own father back in 2001 I got emotional after listening to this song. The pain eases sometimes but it never really goes away. Ever. You always want that one more moment to ask the old man a question. All you can do is remember the good times and cherish his memory.
This new Hip Hop track is well executed and the beat captures the moment to perfection. It’s piano background adds to the picture that he has created for us. This is new school Hip Hop with a new school feel. I like the lyricism and I’ll be keeping an eye out for more releases from Ebgbev as we all should.
Detroit in Michigan has a new emcee to embrace. With his Pops looking out for him up above, the sky is the limit.
Stream ”Numb to the Pain” right here on Spotify to hear this deep track.
