Elohim: i grew up with very little money. my parents put all of their focus on our well being; learning the joy of music, feeding us organic food, and living a life full of LOVE. as a kid it’s hard to see all of that.
I cried every other day because i saw the stark contrast in what I had and what the kids around me had.
We didn’t have the fancy cars, the nice houses or expensive possessions. when my mom could feel my sadness as I discovered we were “different” from the other families, she’d remind me, "we are rich with love". i cry now thinking of the abundance of love my family gave me every single day and how lucky that makes me.
I didn't fully grasp the incredible importance of those words until recently. Love has become my main focus in life and i now know how priceless it truly is.
A couple of months ago I was on my way home from the gym and decided to drive past my childhood home where I grew up. i started singing "i got love fuck your money " out loud.. and it all came to me. i began to form the verses, chorus and instrumental melodies in the car. i got home, showered and couldn’t stop singing it.. i jumped out in the middle of my shower to make a voice note still covered in soap. when i finished my shower i drove straight to the studio to produce and finish the song I had mapped out. when your music and lyrics are coming from a deeply rooted genuine place they pour out of you like a faucet you can’t stop. this is f*ck your money.
