Dive serves as an “black inspiration” album of sorts. Whatever he makes of situations are either
to teach or to motivate. Take the first track off of the album: it is entitled “Save Yourself”. Take a listen to “Swimm” and you will see where I get these ideas from: that song is beautifully enticing as it is enthralling with its positive messages and massaging rhythms. Even the hard hitting “If U Say” takes the same route while BJ The Chicago Kid kills his singing routine. With a tracklist that is only 11 songs, there is very little room for…
