Flooding earstreams worldwide with melodic auto-tune, double-timed flows, a catchy hook, and flex-heavy, combative rhymes; New York native, Migs718's new song, "Sharks," explores swimming with, well, the industry/societal sharks, and going against the current. Amid this, however, Migs718 also makes sure to light a spliff because life's obstacles can leave one in uncharted waters.
The soundscape for "Sharks" is led by a wind percussion, backed by a booming baseline and followed with steady hi-hats. As the track moves forward, Migs718 speaks on keeping his focus (even if it means not getting shut-eye). He also quotes Finding Nemo's Dory, saying to everyone anonymously: keep swimming. Touting lyrics like "Silence the enemy born in the dark /You a Lil' fish now you swimming with sharks," Migs718 hones into his craft low-key and lets his music speak volumes once it's showcased for all to hear.
Other notable lines include: "I been the goat before rap and I go for the plaques/With a ghost in the back, you see we never cap you want smoke you get clapped we been making a splash," and "I ain't really bout scuffing my sneaks, nah /But I can still master ya beat/They playing my song on repeat/I got a lot on my mind/I ain't on nothing except for my grind."
He says during an interview with Bay Area’s Innovator510’s Dash Radio Show, “Right now I am working on singles. Single after single. Every single song is going to sound like me, but they are going to be completely different types of energy.”
