TRUTHLiVE "Shoot Me Down"
As owner and founder of Interdependent Media, Evan Phillips (a.k.a. TRUTHLiVE) knows how to spot a solid hip-hop beat, and here he takes an epic instrumental from Tha Bizness—a track full of strings, synths, gunshots, pianos, and plenty of slap—to serve as the backdrop for his storytelling flow. Phillips takes every opportunity in "Shoot Me Down" to paint a picture of his coming-up and elaborate on the struggles of remaining an independent artist, themes which are sure to be explored further upon in his forthcoming debut full-length, Patience.
