“Chewing Gum” was created to get people to think more in-depth on this year’s election and voting. This song has been an outlet that has allowed Lamar Riddick to express how he feels on the topic. We have to trust God with our votes but also do our part. This year he has chosen not to vote in the Presidential Election portion of the election as he did not feel called.
“The song ‘Chewing Gum’ was inspired by one of my favorite actors Denzel Washington. He mentions that he chews gum to help him memorize his lines which allows him to think about them with greater intensity and depth. That is my vision for this song. ‘Chewing Gum’ is meant to help get the viewers to think more in-depth about the election and get their mind brewing on my viewpoint,” said Riddick.
