Buck N’ Nice – Merry Go Round ft. Julius Myth [Audio]
Ottawa, ON – Ottawa’s own Buck N’ Nice duo (rapper SawBuck and producer So Nice) just dropped some dope new audio for their latest single entitled “Merry Go Round” (featuring Julius Myth). It’s the first single off the duo’s forthcoming Us Versus Them album. And it’s a sweet teaser for what they have in-store for us. Peep it below, and head over here to cop a free download.
The “Merry Go Round” is a metaphor, by the way (because metaphors are bond), for the cycle that is life. Because the dream is out there. And sometimes the merry go round takes you – briefly – within eyesight of it. But ultimately, you wind up stuck in the loop-around. Whether you’re an artist waiting on that big break, or someone stuck in a cruddy nine-to-five job, or you’re just living a life that never seems to take you where you want to end up. The Merry Go Round struggle is real.
Also, that hook is golden. So many cats have gotten stuck in the Merry Go Round of freeverses. And they don’t even realize it. There’s a time and place for freeversing, but bridges and hooks are also important. Very important. And often under-appreciated. These dudes use the hook to bring us back full-circle (that was a merry go round pun that I made, right there): “Forced to ride on this merry go round/With highs and lows/And it rarely slows down/I feel like I’m stuck in the same old cycle.”
