New Jersey's Mir Fontane has turned his pain into art. The Camden, NJ rapper has made strides over the past few years but he's only getting better with each drop. This week, the rapper released his latest project, Still Alive. With seven tracks in total, Mir Fontane handles the project on his own without any guest appearances in sight. But it's meant to be that way as Mir Fontane uses the track track project to tell his own truth to the world. The titular track, for example, finds Mir Fontane staring in the mirror and confronting his demons at full speed ahead.
"At the end of 2019, I lost a lot. I was in Orlando when I got the news that my brother Jose was gone forever. Not long after that, I lost someone that showed me what genuine love was for the first time due to my selfish tendencies," he said in a statement. "I didn’t have the same feeling for music or people anymore. Didn’t know who I could trust long term. I fell into depression. I felt like a burden to everyone around me. Old traumas started to surface and make me shut off the world....I took the steps I needed to pull myself out of that hole, but the pain never goes away. I coulda quit, coulda ran, coulda died...Still Alive."
