Sick, Tired & Done from Jazzmensoul is the story of suffering and the time is now for change

Sick, Tired & Done‘ from Jazzmensoul is the story of suffering and the time is now for change in the USA with all the terrific losses of life due to the police. This is a message that hits home.

The message here is: ”This song is born out of a consistency of brutal contempt for the lives of people of color by a nation that we have built and fought in numerous wars for, while under duress”.

Jazzmensoul and his team have sent through a deep song here that is so well-needed in this shocking time. Too many people of color have lots their lives and the lies have finally caught up to the small-minded authorities out there. Of course there are police that do a great job but for too long, deaths have occurred due to lack of care. Going overboard with petty arrests and hurting people that causes death, must end.

Sick, Tired & Done‘ from Jazzmensoul, PahPah Mike, Christopher Lowry, Gene Torres, Camille Gainer Jones, Gordon Jones and Kevin Blackler is such a vital song to spread this vital message. People are sick and tired and hopefully this cause is successful. The sooner the better.

Finding your purpose with OneSixTwo’s Monster Ft. Tommy B

Monster” from OneSixTwo is one for the books from the Medocino County artist in sunny California.

OneSixTwo takes us inside his journey of being the underdog that has dealt with the undertones that all plague us at some point. The negative energy that can be all around us. I feel like a lot of artists are envious of his talent and this affected him. Not anymore. This is a fiery effort with passion.

This is a quality single from the rising talent from Medocino artist who sings his heart out while also featuring the excellent Tommy B. These two join forces like a perfectly cooked Sunday roast and it heats up during the ice cold beat to emanate the right temperature.

2020 has just landed the ultimate soundtrack. It has been a year stained by so many tragedies.

This fine song from the talented OneSixTwo as he slides into the place he belongs. After being the underdog due to egos and pettiness for too long, it feels like this is his best effort yet. He knows what his purpose is now and that’s to make more top shelf music for the weary souls out there.
