Emotionless (inspired by the song of the same name)


Sometimes I take a step back

Before someone step to me the wrong way

You been clocked in on my movements

So I got time today 

I get to thinking about old insecurities

Like why would they worry me

Been on this earth one past thirty

And I’ve washed my hands of those that did me dirty

So why lather, rinse, repeat

Bring up emotions when we meet

Jumping in the deep end

Thirty minutes after we eat

You used to eat away at my psyche

Listening to my mind thinking you like me

New checks turned into Nikes

New balances turned into might be’s

Should’ve traveled to someone else’s heart

If you wanted to sight see

There’s no feeling left but healing

One day at a time nothing else

Stopped caring about bullshit

Learned to love myself



As the year begins to wind down, a lot of music will begin to be released from your favorite artists. Whether it be full studio albums or deluxe versions of their latest projects, fans will appreciate new content however it comes. BIA has been making a name for herself in Hip-Hop over the last few years as she continuously drops heavy-hitting music since her first hit single she shared with Russ for his track, Best On Earth. She has gone on to release her latest EP, For Certain last December but recently released a deluxe version thanks to her hit single, Whole Lotta Money featuring Nicki Minaj. 

On the deluxe, one track that stands out to me is Motionless. I’ve always appreciated artists that are unapologetic and raw in their verses tapping into their personal situations. This track gives listeners an in-depth look of the rapper. Being a writer, it’s refreshing to incorporate personal experiences into one’s craft, something I’ve done from time to time in my poetry. You can find this track on all music streaming services.
