In preparation for his upcoming album Chapovelli, A$ton Matthews premieres his new single "Ever Since," for HNHH. The album is a long-awaited follow-up to his breakout EP A$ton 3:!6.
The beat for this track is infectious. The hard piano keys during the introduction really set up Matthews' delivery and lyrics. It's definitely a tone setter. The song is only one verse, but one that takes you through Matthews' upbringing through a lyrical exercise. He tells us about being a juvenile involved with gangs, drugs, and chasing thrills. The real message behind that isn't glorification or bravado speak, but a message of being authentic from beginning to end. Take a listen to the track.
Raised from round the field, living, dying bout that dollar bill
Youngin's busting scripts and poppin pills just to chase the thrill
These are just the times we living in,
living just to die so we runnin up them dividends.. Binannands
