On “My Own Way,” JackyBoyD Paints a Picture of His Past

Kenyan-born JackyBoyD, over a soulful instrumental, raps about his past and how moving from Kenya to the USA changed him. He also goes into detail about how the move impacted the friendships he’d amassed over his first fourteen years. While I’ve never moved out of the country, I do feel this one because it’s, on a much smaller scale, what happened when I moved from over East to over West Baltimore. I had to start over and things changed for me, especially because it was when I started middle school. However, I wouldn’t trade those early experiences for anything. That’s the vibe that I get from this one, too. It’s better to have experienced some things than to have missed out on them entirely–even if childhood isn’t infinite. Check out the track below and support dope music in all its forms.
