Somewhere between Childish Gambino and Smino, I think you’d find Geno Five. The Jersey-born melodic master’s latest cut is one that says “just be happy with life” and not to sweat the material things. That’s deep, to me, because we’ve got a lot (and I mean a lot) of songs that delve into why commercialism and materialism are needs in this world. You don’t have as many that eschew that thought process and just want you to get up, get out and enjoy life.
Life’s a finite thing and can be gone in an instant. When you’re gone, what do you want people to remember about you? Do you want them to remember you were iced out at all times, but never really happy/satisfied? Or would you rather them remember little minute details, like the way you scrunch up your nose or something slightly trivial but shows how much you’re actually known? I like money, but I’d rather people remember me for me, not my material gains. After all, what’s the point of the glitz if you’re not happy about how far you’ve come?
