Bias Truth – Live Long, B Great [Audio]

Vancouver, BCBias Truth just hit us with his latest single release titled “Live Long, B Great.” It’s been a quick minute (i.e.: only a couple of weeks) since Bias Truth released his collabo project with Kam0 titled Mid Summer Nights B4 (which you can download over here).

Now Bias is already gearing up for another project titled BMore BFore: The Revisit. You’ll find this joint on there when the project drops. But in the meanwhile, check the new track below.

Bias comes in on a smoothly uplifting self-produced beat, and hits us with a flow that I always end up comparing to that of Rick Ross. The resemblance in the voice and delivery is uncanny. That being said – Ross’ M.O. is raps about the streets, whereas Bias’ M.O. is raps that induce spirituality.

This track is Bias’ way of sending a prayer and blessing to his listeners: he asks that we all choose to live long and be great. Seems easy enough, right? But it’s not. Bias understands the spectrum of faults that can lead us to our downfalls. But he encourages us to overcome it all in order to take the high road in life: “I see us rise above this/ Sun above the clouds/ May we all live long and be great.”

I just want to point out that Bias refers to an “us” and a “we.” He’s making us – the listeners – into a people; a community. A joined people can do much more than one single individual. And by using the words “us” and “we,” Bias also adds himself into the equation. He recognizes his own faults and prays to live long and be great along with us.
