First of all, I absolutely love the beat. It’s done by Rhode Island producer (and frequent BlackLiq collaborator) Mopes and samples Carlton Williams’ “Prison Song” (yes, that’s the “Mask Off” sample). I’m honestly surprised more mainstream rappers/producers haven’t chopped it up (it’s one helluva song especially considering its meaning). The second thing is the way BlackLiq flows over said beat. On “Therapy,” Liq speaks on mental health, the plight of Black people in the world, and the “juggling [of] depression and optimism.” In typical BlackLiq fashion, the VA native sparks conversations while also delivering a conscious bop of a song. If you like your conscious rap with a vibe that’s undeniable, check this one out above and do the SOTB mantra by supporting dope music in all its forms.
