Possession is nine-tenths of the law is an expression meaning that ownership is easier to maintain if one has possession of something. Illect beatsmith, Tee-Wyla confidently owns his moment as he emphatically proclaims 'I got it' with his new single.
The decorated and seasoned producer also understands the universal law of crew love. He enlists Armond WakeUp and Jonathan Baker to come through with the three-man clique up and form like The Fabulous Freebirds. The production is a lush and ethereal pastiche filled with wonder and reflection. The swing of the rhythm will gently transport you into a state of contemplation of the past and the expectation of a burgeoning future. It makes perfect sense when Armond WakeUp plays proud parent by providing his seeds with some vital game in his stanzas:
"Every dark space your mind races through I've been there too
Believe I ain't trying to scare you just prepare you
You're my jewel, and you will carry my legacy
And accomplish many things I will never see."
Sandwiched between these beautiful sonnets is Jonathan Baker's soulful refrain where he floats above the clouds and cheekily dismisses the age-old concept of the sky being the limit.
Tomorrow is not promised for a reason. Own your moment now.
