Weekend Work - Bas

That same day, Coach PR and DJ Caesar were scheduled to speak with a special guest on their show, none other than Dreamville rapper, Bas. I had heard of Bas before through Alonzo, who used to work with him before Bas’s career took off in 2016. Bas’s rise to fame was nothing short of meteoric – his second studio album, “Too High to Riot,” released in 2016, had garnered critical acclaim, solidifying his position as one of the most talented rappers in the game. His sold-out shows and collaborations with artists like J. Cole and Ab-Soul were a testament to his hard work and dedication to his craft. But my mind remained on my own career. The day Sunday Night Screenings would be introduced to the Sirius XM audience, and I prepared myself for this crucial step in my life, I couldn’t help but be reminded of the Bud and Roach Show, which had been on hiatus for some time now. My friendship with Alonzo had suffered due to my overwhelming desire for fame and recognition. We hadn’t addressed the divide between us, and the thought weighed heavily on my mind. As I sat there, contemplating Bas’s success and my own stalled aspirations, I couldn’t help but feel a pang of envy. I had once been so confident in my ability to achieve fame and recognition, but now, I felt as if I had let the ambition consume me, leading to the erosion of relationships I held so dearly. The Shade 45 studio, which I had once seen as a platform to propel myself to stardom, now felt like a monument to my own hubris. The anger began to bubble within me, directed at those who I believed had benefitted from my ego and ambition. I had given so much of myself to these pursuits, only to have them overshadow the relationships that had once been the foundation of my life. It was a bitter pill to swallow, but I knew I needed to face the reality of my situation. I had to acknowledge the damage that my ego, ambition, and alcolism had caused.
