Six months ago I had an epiphany. I was sitting at home, one year after graduating college, when I realized I wasn’t too fond of my regular 9-to-5. At that very moment I decided to do whatever I needed to do to eventually accomplish my lofty Aspirations. Everyone has a vision for their life, even Koncept, who lets the world know what dreams he’s pursuing in the form of new single, Aspirations, off his forthcoming album, awaken. Produced by BBAS member J57, Aspirations is a soulful, yet spunky, and jazzy sample-driven track over which ‘Cept spits about what he aspires to attain, from finding that “it” girl to wife down and eventually seeing Australia, sentiments Soul Khan echoes on a half-sung hook. At the very least, it seems that Koncept achieved his goal of having listeners understand his goals. Need even more fuel to feed the fire of your Aspirations? You’ll be able to listen to more of Koncept and his stories on awaken, out next Tuesday, December 13. In the meantime, as a bonus click Listen Now above and you’ll also be able to watch Aspirations’ visuals as well.
