[SOHH highlights a hot single each week and offers a unique look at the record. After West Coast rapper Roc C styled up his new "Styllions" record, NY rapper Mysonne dissects his "Scattered Thoughts."]
I have a track that's on my documentary, Life Teaches and Reality Bites, called "Scattered Thoughts."
It's probably one of my favorite tracks. It goes into the mind of a person who's locked up in prison. They're actually my thoughts: The first year of my incarceration, my mind was so scattered. I didn't even know what was going on ... one minute I would be completely spaced out, then another minute I'd be happy just to talk to someone that I knew, and another minute I'd be depressed and confused like, "How the f*ck I get here?"
This song reflects that. The creativity and authenticity of it was so real to me that if it's not my favorite its definitely one of my favorite tracks.
With me, when it comes to creating music, its expression so it doesn't take me long to build from thoughts I have. Sometimes the beat speaks to me, other times I write a song without a beat until I find one that makes a marriage with the music. That's my escape route. It's how I release.
