Check out “Peacemaker” over at Skilly Magazine HERE
BATON ROUGE, LA | JUNE 13, 2017: Today, Baton Rouge’s Strugg the Prophecy is making his first appearance in the hip-hop scene with his breakout track, “Peacemaker,” which debuted on Skilly Magazine. The track is dynamic and dark, touching on the deep subject of depression, substance abuse, and self-destruction, but with an overall theme of hope and perseverance. Strugg elaborates on the track:
“Peacemaker is my favorite song on the album, it’s about me being depressed and having tendencies to be self-destructive. However, through all the negative, I have still managed to be where I want to be. I actually also reminisced about periods of time when I abused different substances, and it’s a reminder of who I was and how far I’ve come, so it gives me hope and excites me to see how far I’ll go from this point forward. I wrote it on my apartment balcony. I was recording myself back to back on my phone so I wouldn’t forget how the melodies and verses went. I posted the lyrics to the chorus of this song immediately after I wrote it on Facebook and a friend of mine shared it, and I had to tell them they were my lyrics. Not only does it hold special meaning to me, but I feel it came out perfect without being forced.” – Strugg the Prophecy
