Bias Truth – Lying Vanities [Audio]

Vancouver, BCBias Truth recently dropped a new self-produced single entitled “Lying Vanities.” This single comes to us with only a week left until Bias drops his Mid-Summer Nights B4 project (which is a collaboration with French producer, Kam0). This single also comes to us on the heels of Bias’ recent move to Vancouver. Y’all are probably familiar with Bias as a Toronto cat. But now he’s on the West Coast. So stay watchin’. And get familiar.

Bias has a bit of a Rick Ross quality to his flow on this track – it’s all in the voice. He gets aggressive and hits us with an anecdotal joint about “Lying Vanities.” And the production has a militant feel to it. Things get serious. 

As usual, Bias leaves it up to the listener to interpret his rhymes. The hook on this track (“Lying vanities/ Forsake their own mercy”) is actually from the bible. Jonah 2:8, to be precise. So here’s how I’m seeing it: vanity refers to someone who is vain. I think Bias is suggesting that when we’re 100 per cent focused on ourselves and our own motives (i.e.: when we’re being vain dinks), we start lying to ourselves. You know – it’s the whole “man in the mirror thing.” You think that the world revolves around you. But everything you are is a lie. So Bias sends a prayer that you stay humble.
