Emmitt Dupree – Mama Don’t
Calm and enigmatic, EMITT DUPREE’s single ‘Mama Don’t’ crosses genres of rap and hiphop, to depict the hardships of life and those lonely moments of guilt and helplessness. Someone who you care about, who you love, who you’ve known all your life, sometimes can be the person who know the least. Our closest family members and friends, sometimes hide more private thoughts and feelings, as much as strangers do. A contradiction, for sure, but we let this fact go, for we love them and never want to rock the boat. But new life starts with yourself. New life starts with managing the environment around you. Unpredictability, is a harsh part of life we all live. Let’s live.
