Last week, we challenged local artists to let us know which songs inspired them to the point of jealousy. Rob Deez was up for the challenge and shared his thoughts on the subject:
Deez: “There have definitely been a few songs that I’ve heard that cause me to think to myself “they beat me to it!! I would’ve written that”. One example is the song I’m Awesome by a rapper from Maine named Spose. His style is similar to mine, and for the most part he’s describing me pretty accurately, because let’s face it, I’m awesome.
“Also a lot of songs by Atmosphere feel like songs I might’ve written. Mostly because a lot of his older stuff is about women and alcohol, and well…those are my two favorite things to write about.”
Here’s a Rob Deez song. We definitely see the inspiration! (And FYI, Rob, we think you’re way more awesome than Spose!)
What is a song you wish you wrote? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of the song and why! We will do our best to feature it in a future blog post!
