With this hard hitting solo song like this, Lazarus made sure to make his stamp with it. He showcased his “double-life” as a doctor and a rapper. When asked about his double life, Lazarus went on to mention, “I wanted to put my present day life in the record. I feel it important for music to showcase what you do on a daily basis. This is my hustle and this is what my lifestyle is. Nothing fabricated. This is what Hip Hop means to me. Companies have always told me to hide this or that about myself, and I wanted to do just the opposite and that is to proudly represent those things in this video.”
“Nothing fabricated. This is what Hip Hop means to me. “
Lazarus recently spoke out on Social media about being turned down by record labels saying, “Records labels and channels turned down my latest video because it doesn’t feature any sexual or alcohol related images. Too bad for them.”
Artists all over the world face this very issue while releasing good content for their fans. In fact, this is one of the main reasons that record labels are failing, and artists like Lazarus are creating their own independent labels to drop content that’s true to the reality that artists face.
“I’m a little crazy, I’m a little Ku-Ku”
You’ve GOT to be a little crazy if you’re on a mission. Why? Because when you’re following your heart and your dreams, everyone around you will judge you and call you “crazy”. Lazarus knows how that feels all too well, so much so that he accepts it and takes advantage of that label that others place on him.
Lazarus went on to say, “This song represents freedom of expression, freedom to push boundaries and freedom to be what you want to be in life without limit. Just believe in yourself even if nobody else will.”
