Hip Hop and old school soul coalesce in Corey Morris’ latest sun-bleached single, Can I, which conceptually allows the lyrical tone to contrast with the mellow, celestial instrumentals. With choruses repetitively asking, “can I live, can I motherfucking live”, Morris expresses his internal conflict as a result of the external chaos that leaves us all aware of how far we can fall.
While the track sonically encompasses the beauty, compassion and soul that we can find in the world, Morris’ pulls you back down from the dreamy plateau that the instrumentals put you on with his gritty introspection that asks the question that is never too far from any of our minds.
Can I is available on apple music.
