Look, man. 2020 needs to chill, son. I mean, how many more things can go drastically wrong, fam? At this point, we’ve all been so consumed with the coronavirus that some of us have forgotten that other things are also happening out here. With that being said, I want to say rest in peace to Bill Withers. All I know is, he was responsible for some of the most poignant lyrics ever committed to tape.
Ok, for those who are unaware, the legendary Bill Withers died on Monday from heart complications. Now, even though I’m in my mid-30s, as a songwriter, I used to study the hell out of this man. Like, he always did a great job of writing records that spoke to real human experiences. Shit, as proud of a Black man as he was, his songs could be universally appreciated by everyone. The truth is, that’s a talent that the vast majority of songwriters will never have. So, we need to acknowledge our outliers while they roam the Earth, bruh.
In the end, I don’t even know what else to say, son. Ultimately, I just want to thank Bill Withers for everything he’s accomplished. By and by, I’m sure that most of us are familiar with his biggest songs. However, I’m going to post all of them anyway, man. At the end of the day, Bill Withers is a cotdamn GOAT, fam. Let’s all celebrate him and his work. That is all. LC out.
