Producer/rapper Jordan D. Mitchell shares with us two singles that encapsulate his life’s journey. The first of these is “Basura,” a piece that sees the rapper explore a handful of topics ranging from gang violence, relationship with women, and the eternal inner struggle of finding oneself. Over a mellow, solemn backdrop he takes time to detail his personal experiences and shares with the listener all the ups and downs he is going through.
The second track titled “Sobriety” is about being under the influence. Consumed by the mind-bending effects of alcohol and recreational drugs, he takes the listener deep into the mind of a self-destructive individual. It’s something everyone can relate to and sure has some insightful elements for us to ponder over.
