[SOHH highlights a hot record every week and offers a behind-the-scenes look at the smash in Singled Out. After JP One broke down his "I’m The One” banger, Baltimore’s Damond Blue dissects his King Los-assisted "Lemme Talk My Ish” anthem.]
At the end of the day, like I said, people need to get a proper representation of what Baltimore is. We’re actually a beautiful city.
You have crimes, you have murders everywhere. We’re such a small city and certain things aren’t tolerate and things happen. Bad things. It’s just like a back and forth ping-pong effect. I just wanted to give the city a proper representation of what Baltimore is.
I also wanted to put myself up amongst an artist of King Los’ stature. Los is one of my favorite rappers in the game. Period.
So I said, “Hey, I want to get this going on between us. We’re young, I’m young.” I watched him do what he do and he’s in a whole ‘nother place where I dream of.
I don’t cherish the moment, I cherish the relationship. My only thing is I want to build a relationship with those people that have been doing it for so many years.
Los is one of the first artists from Baltimore to make it out of the city through music. It was a no-brainer.
We put that together, my man Jay Oliver produced it. You gotta position yourself around the winners in order to win. I wanted to give something organic to the city.
We’re both from Baltimore and we both have fan bases and people respect that.
All in all, I want people to understand this is all me. This is really me. I’m really going to tell you about myself. That’s how that came about.
Big shout-out to King Los!
