King Six’s Cut You Off, was conceived during the sad and painful period while hospitalized from being shot in the face by armed robbers. Surviving a headshot was nothing short of a miracle but it came with heavy prices. He couldn’t talk as his mouth was wired shut, his face was a mess and he was abandoned by a lot of people. A record deal in the works was canceled and while you couldn’t blame the record label (who would sign an artist that couldn’t talk).
However, giving up was never an option as he knew he was destined for music. He carried these emotions buried deep in his heart and while he says he’s not ready to do a full song that tells his pain, Cut You Off is his latest release, a preamble.
Cut You Off is chill with deep lyrics, that will have you rewinding the track to listen to the messages. The only setback for me is that it’s too short a song for me as I fell into the vibe and wanted to hear more than the entrancing 1minute 51 seconds he serves. But one day I believe this story will be told in full.
Listen to the song below.
