“There came a time where I had to be able to flip my pains into joys. That’s the only true way that I could survive in this world.” -Amarii Davu
Nashville hip-hop artist, Amarii Davu delivers “Joy and Pain” right at the turn of a new year. Still passionate as ever through his lyrical delivery, he discusses his challenges and experiences as the chorus breaks into a light sample of Maze’s timeless classic “Joy and Pain.” This joint has a 90’s hip-hop feel, you know, the one where you are in a Cadillac Seville cruisin’ the streets. Davu says, “music is my religion…” like many artists who are able to channel their vulnerability into their crafts.
The lyricist tells a story and listeners can definitely feel the fight for a positive focus as he talks about the good and the bad in his life. Davu says,
“I wrote this because I wanted to turn my personal pains into something that would make people feel good. I was tired of wallowing in pain and not letting joy come in.”
