“I really loved the way Stalley worked the Charles Bradley sample on the song…soulful with a new 808 bottom to it. When I decided that my next project was going to carry mixtape elements, I knew I would love to work this one into it. So my homie Shash’U and I recreated it, and I called on Sam I Am Montolla to bless the hook. Shout out the Original creator Lord Brahma!”
Thanks for your time!

First introduction to Es via his latest album and title-track visuals.
This song is about setting realistic goals and remaining focused and following your dreams. Sometimes we set unrealistic goals for ourselves and as a result we fall short on expectation. This joint just had that type of inspirational vibe to it that gave me goosebumps. The production on this one is just phenomenal. Couldn’t believe this was all for me. LOL. A very suitable title track for the album. Dedicated to all dream chasers. Dream BIG and dream PRACTICAL. Don’t stop! Big shout out to my Essenchill Records labelmate and producer extraordinaire. Concept…Get to know this man!
