Spesh K – Live Life Comfortably (Prod. Supreme Beats) [Audio]

Toronto, ONSpesh K has just dropped the latest offering off his Nice City album (via SoundCloud) for our listening pleasure. The track is called “Live Life Comfortably,” and it features Royal T Pompey on the hook, and Spesh K on the raps and engineering. Check it below and head over to iTunes to download a copy of Nice City.

This really hit it home for me. Because so many of the up-and-coming rappers I talk to rarely have aspirations to make it to celebrity status. They don’t need to make it huge, and bathe in dollar bills, and stuff, in order to be happy. They just want to be able to live comfortably off their craft; to put the hustle in and make a living off doing what they love.

I mean, just listen to that Pompey hook: “We struggle just to get by/ Only the strong will survive.” Serious survival-of-the-fittest business, right there.

Spesh K is pretty straight-up about his come-up on this track, too. He lives in the T-Dot, now. But he’s originally from Halifax. So on his last verse, he opens up about the poverty within Nova Scotia, and how it’s served a humble foundation for his pursuit of rap-dom.
