Less Is More
April 29, 2017
It's been two years since Dave Steezy dropped an album, But Less is More still plays like it's brand new.
These nine songs that amount to just 21 minutes of art, which makes it easy to play over and over. Sometimes the best part about an album is it's replay-abilty.
You could be on a drive to work and get stuck in some traffic and not even realize that you've just listened this album two times. You also won't even be mad that you were in traffic because the music kept your mind at ease. Uninterrupted good vibes, with nothing but quality sound.
Steezy starts off the album proving that he's focused on his mission with "AGo-Getter." He introduces the listener to some motivation with phrases like "Money makin' moves all day, I'm not lazy" and "Only elevate up, that's the shit that I'm on." They type of words you should be telling yourself on a daily basis to keep it pushing.
"Hokeo Drift" is a pretty funny name for a song. But it's exactly the kind of name for a song we'd come to expect from anyone who grew up listening to the likes of E-40 and Mac Dre. Northern California rappers typically have their own slanguage that they continue to build upon.
It's a weird thing to think about, but there are still people out there who are listening to the radio. And everyone knows what "radio music" sounds like. But we should be redefining what "radio music" is.
Because when you hear songs like "Naturally" it sounds like it can be a radio hit, but for some reason it's not because it may not have that "Pop(ular)" sound.
But that sound the radio stations should be looking for is quality music, not what's most popular. But I get it. Thats why pop artists like Drake, Chris Brown, and Ariana Grande are Pop artists. Because they specifically make popular sounds.
Back to our story, "Naturally" is the kind of song that could be played on repeat because of the unique sounds and how it can be a mellow beat while still making you gig at the same time.
He starts off by saying "Naturally, these things do happen." Just think about what you're going through right now, whatever it is, listen to these words. Guarantee that they relate to your situation.
My family gonna be involved,
How many of y'all have used Airbnb before? I'm guessing it's going to be at least half. I'm still not sure what the track "Air B&B" has to do with the website. But I'm guessing when he's saying "Hit me when you on the way, I'm at a condo" he's talking about an Airbnb.
Either way, this song is real smooth. The beat lays down perfect like a blanket you put out for a picnic on a nice day. Steezy sandwiches two verses between three hooks. He literally brings the condiments when he says "Yeah I got the sauce, I got the condiments."
After the picnic and hanging out at the Airbnb, Steezy talks about his "Sunrise."
Girl, you make my sun rise
Everyone is looking for love, and a good time. But not just a good time as in "Oh yeah I had a good time with you last night." Good time as in like time well spent. Where you learned something about that other person and most importantly about yourself and your journey.
The sun rises every day because that's what it's done since the beginning of time. But it's all about finding people who give the sunrise meaning in your life.
Don't take for granted the little things in life, like the sunrise. If you spend too much time worrying about what's happened to you in the past, you won't be able to enjoy the time that's ahead of you.
So set an alarm tomorrow morning to watch the sunrise. And write yourself a note that simply says "Less is More." Guarantee it'll go a long way.
