The phrase “be well” can mean “be healthy,” or “feel good.” Or in the case of BLAX‘s new project: Be Well is a culturally relevant piece of art that touches upon multiple levels of the human experience. Blax titled his new project to embody this deal in the form of a 15-track album.
“I aimed to create an enjoyable album that touches on an array of topics such as police brutality, racial profiling, well-being, good times and the overall black male urban experience. Music today is full of messages that are detrimental to the listeners and the music’s culture. My intention with this project’s listening experience is to create meaningful music with a message that is easily digestible.”
In the months leading to this project’s release, the up and coming artist began spreading his message with singles such as “Nothin,” which quickly infiltrated the digital realm. Recently, he also released a video for this G.R.A.M.Z assisted record which was also premiered on HipHopDX. On songs like “Nothin,” and throughout his new project, Blax details the life and times of a kid on the streets who then shares a glimpse of his thoughts, as now, a man existing on the brink.
He also says:
“This project is dedicated to the inner cities across the globe, those struggling, and the balancing act required of them to simply maintain in today’s ever-evolving world.”
