Azad Right debuted the video for his song “Showtime” on RapFix back in March, spotlighting LA, but he went in a different direction with his latest track “Now I Know.”
On the first verse the Los Angeles-based rapper and producer explains the pressure he constantly feels to put out new music and release a debut record and it sounds like he's gotten a harsh dose of reality in the music industry with lines like, “That’s when you realize these people they are not your friends, ‘Till your records buzzin’ and you hot again.”
The next verse, lyrically, is a bit more uplifting as he describes an interaction with a girl he met at a club. She knew his music, liked the way he rapped, and let’s just say he was in there like swimwear.
The final verse brings his thoughts to the present, explaining how he’s new to the game but can see himself taking off right now. “We just started man, we ain’t even gettin’ guap, imagine whats gon' happen when we hit the top,” is the lyric that brings the song full circle; from pressure coming up, to finally scoring, and now looking ahead.
"I’m grateful for everyone that I’ve got to meet along the journey so far," Azad shared with fans via his site. "You’ve all inspired me to grow in one way or another. It’s been a long time coming and I truly appreciate your patience. This shit hasn’t gone as planned but I have the opportunity to do what I love for a living and that’s all that I can ask for.”
