About Hard Times

By Bishop Brigante

The craziest thing about the “Hard Times” record is every single experience I talked about was from a person I knew or myself directly. When I was creating this piece I was wild emotional about all of these things I was talking about too. Cause I spend a lot of time reflecting and thinking about my community all the time. So when it starts coming out in my music, it really tugs at my soul and my feelings. So when I created this song originally it was on a S.C.A.M. beat that had this “hard times in the city” sample and it had a real underground sound and feel to it. I wanted the song to have a little bit more of a commercial feel to it so that the vibe could touch more people rather than just get buried in the underground. So I went to a young rising producer who we now know as T-Minus. I remember we were on Skype all night while he was creating the music for the new version and I thought this kid was the most talented producer I had ever met. That was an understatement. The hook supposed to be a reference for another singer to get on, but with the back ups from an incredible singer named Neenah, the hook sounded good as is. I was nervous at first to leave it with my vocals singing but eventually it grew on me. It’s very close to my heart like “About to Change” is. I love this song.
