I may not be where I want to be, but I’m so far from where I used to be! A lot to be thankful for! – Bakeman Global
Since his rise joining Para Music Group, there has not been one single person who does not know who Bakeman Global is . One thing is for sure 2019 has been the year for Bakeman.
The former basketball star who traveled the world had children waiting for him after he played is now making people wait in lines as hes shutting down the independent scene. Released on the 17th ALIVE (Adopted to Life in Various Eras) is the example of the power this man wields with his pen.
The ten song project is a musical representation of his thoughts and his life, while its cover is a symbolic representation of himself. Going off of our own opinions the statue head represents Bakeman and the Legacy he will leave once his time on this planet is up. The crack on the side of his face shows that the struggles of life are not always easy and hes continuing to prosper through life.
The lead single The Old You featuring the Hamiltones is by far one of the most creative singles I have heard in 2019. The former background vocalists for soul singer Anthony Hamilton have added their quartet styled music and RNB vibes really gave us the vibe of a Hip Hop Love Story.
Be Gone should be the anthem of 2019-2020, during our everyday struggles we encounter people that give us negative energy. This song is dedicated to the naysayers and those that put us through nothing but grief. His aggressive approach and the production by Davincii shows us how serious he is in protecting his aura in life.
Where were You featuring Kenny Dark has us in our feelings as he is at his most vulnerable. A testament to his father he is speaking to him as he discusses what the absence of the paternal figure has left him. As someone that lost their father at an early age you learn to feel for people that go through what you went through or similar to.
Without giving the whole project away make sure you check out ALIVE on all digital streaming platforms and follow him on ig: @bakemanglobal
