Arys Déjan – SEEzins (Prod. Roca Beats) [Audio]

Toronto, ONArys Déjan recently hit us up to let us know that he dropped a new Roca Beats produced banger titled “SEEzins” off his forthcoming debut EP (which is due out in 2015).

“SEEzins” is a play on “seasons” – just in case you were wondering. It’s a trappy turn-up banger. And it starts off with a massive dose of flex: “Momma said my first word out my mouth was Lamborghini.” So apparently Arys has been on that fancy car ish since way before Kanye was on his “Mercy” grind.

But despite the really hungry opening to this track, Arys goes deep on this track. He uses the second half of it all to rap from the perspective of his brother. The track briefly winds down at 1:35, and Arys invites us into his childhood: “Maybe we could take it back to where it all started.” And then he puts himself into his brother’s shoes and hits us with a very raw childhood commentary. Check it out below.

When I first heard this, I thought it should have been two different songs, or at least divided into two parts. Then I realized that Arys called it “SEEzins” for a reason: there are two distinct parts to this song to represent two distinct Arys Déjan seasons. And the whole “SEE” part of “SEEzins” is a nod to different perspectives (i.e.: how we SEE things) from different people.

The first season is seen through Arys’ eyes, and the second season is seen through his brother’s eyes. The first season is the summer rap famed paradise that Arys is hungry for, and the second season is the cold bitter winter that he came up on.
