It’s a sentiment that’s been expressed countless times in as many forms, but it bears repeating: you only get one life, so make it a good one. Unless you’re lucky enough to be Buddhist, Hindu, Sikh, Jainist, Druid, Cathar, Druze, Rosicrucian or a Kabbalah follower, in which case it looks like you can expect another shot. But I digress – whatever your take on life and the hereafter, I think we can all get behind Zumo Kollie‘s latest single, Times of Our Lives, on which the R.I. native pledges to make every moment count. Backed by the lush sample work of K-Salaam & Beatnick, the young emcee showcases wisdom beyond his years; well aware of just how long and arduous the road to the top is, he’s nonetheless determined to touch the stars: “Avoid all the bull so I step with a purpose… nah, I’m not worried, I’m anxious because I’m workin, I can’t accept I get close and can’t form it perfect.” Think this up-and-comer’s got what it takes to make an indelible mark on the game? Debate away – or withhold judgment till you’ve peeped what he has to offer on his Last Showing LP, due out in Jan. 2011.
