Rapzilla Freshmen Dru Bex dropped his new single “No Exit.” He explained a bit about the song on our Fast 5 Fridays segment.

1. What is the general message behind this song?

“No Exit” is my declaration to never turn back when it comes to music and my faith. The message that I hope others take from it is to go forward faithfully with whatever mission God has entrusted you with as if turning back isn’t even an option.

2. How did you get inspired to create it?

I was actually going for my morning jog and was about to turn onto a street, but then I noticed the NO EXIT sign and decided to keep running straight. From there the idea for the concept hit me.

3. Who produced the song and how’d the production come about?

My boy, Jeremy Rodney-Hall, produced it. He’s pretty much my go-to guy for most of my tracks because he really has my sound. And working with him is usually a collaborative effort. We either build from scratch or he sends me something and we really get in there and tailor the beat to the song.

4. Is this track part of an overall project or a standalone single? What can we expect this song to be the start of?

There’s definitely another full project coming down the line, hopefully in the first quarter of 2019. I’m just starting to work on it now. I want to see how people respond to this song before I decide if it should be on the album or not.

5. Why should people listen to this song or your music in general?

If you ask me and a handful of people I’ve played the song for, it’s pretty lit and that’s the main reason to check it out. As far as why someone should listen to my music and support what I’m doing? Well, these days I’m not really downplaying the gifts God has given me. I know what I bring to the table (CHH and Hip Hop in general); namely, lyrical maturity with a clear message, but also a sense for the culture that allows me to come with a sound that stays fresh and relevant. I consider myself a student of the culture and I hear a lot of music that claims to have the truth but lacks the punch needed to actually change peoples hearts toward God. I feel like I bring the balance.
