Wax - We Can’t All Be Heroes

Posted 3 years ago
Producer:
Lack of Afro
Album:

As a kid, you might have been told that if you work hard, you can be anything you want to be. While this is all well and good, it is not the most realistic motto. Perhaps some brutal honesty and a dose of reality courtesy of Booth favorite, Wax is more appropriate. On We Can’t All Be Heroes, the Maryland/Cali rep spits a cautionary tale about the dangers of pursuing one’s dreams. While the message is not the most uplifting, Wax, backed by a crisp Lack Of Afro produced beat, will have you vibing, thanks to his passionate performance, chocked full of dope one-liners and colorful imagery. We Can’t All Be Heroes is the third single off of Wax’s forthcoming album Continue…, set to drop on the 15th.
