From the mountains in Asheville, North Carolina, Free The Optimus emcee Mike L!VE just released a new self-produced single titled “Star 69“. For folks that remember a time when we didn’t all have smartphones, this one should hit home.
“I admit I press your buttons but doesn’t that turn you on”
“The vast majority of us have come to a realization that we are overly dependent and attached to our cell phones. A realization of an addiction that at times is a thing of beauty and other times seems like a toxic relationship. The irony is I typed this up on a cell phone and chances are you are reading/listening to this via one as well. The first verse is the beauty. When things are going well and all love… But the second verse shows the frustration and obstacles you deal with on a daily basis. I was born and raised with no cell phone and the coolest thing you could do is star-six-nine or have a three way conversation.”
We hope you enjoy and relate. #LIVELIHOOD is still on the way.
