For some, the mere act of staying alive can be very difficult. Don’t take it from me, though, just watch Mary J. Blige’s No More Drama video or have a sit-down interview with Donald Trump’s butler – he’ll tell you how cruel the world can be. But if you would rather make the Booth your one-stop shop, you can hear Nickelus F. not only tell you about the troubles he has, but how he has found the strength to overcome them on his new track Stand Tall. With a Dub Sonata beat and piano thump that trudges along as heavily and confidently as Gary Coleman in a pair of size twelve Tims, Nickelus delivers the rhymes of a champ. We don’t have to search hard to find the emotion on this track, as it’s evident in Nickelus’ voice that he has indeed been standing tall. I don’t doubt he would encourage all of us to do the same. Make sure to get your remote control ready for Nickelus’ Season Premiere mixtape, set to drop May 31.
