On March 9, every year since his passing, we celebrate the life and musical contributions of The Notorious B.I.G.
In honor of the late Hip Hop legend, Ro James surprised fans with the release of a brand new song which includes a vocal sample from Biggie. Titled, “Lost My Mind” and produced by Salaam Remi, the track is soulful and slightly eerie.
The New York crooner battles the line between falling too deep in love and being a rolling stone. Singing out to his lady Ro shares the hard truth, “I’m romantically yours, never skip the foreplay,” he sings “Give you everything you need but you’re driving me insane.” Being honest and communicating the tough truths is hard in any relationship, but James puts all the transparency out in the open.
“If you think you can handle it (it’s all right) / My love is like gambling (it’s all right),” he sings to her. “Got to know how we be dealing (it’s all right) / Got you all in your feelings (it’s all right) / Can’t have me all the time baby (it’s all right) / They say love is blind baby (it’s all right) / But I need you to see baby (it’s all right) / That I gotta be free (it’s all right).”
Speaking about the release, Ro wrote on Instagram. “Paying Homage to the Icon and Legend “The Notorious BIG “. As we Celebrate his life today . Thankful for the inspiration. 90s Hip Hop & RnB plays a huge influence on my being . The Vibe the style the music mixed with some country and some Nasty and Rock and Roll and you Get ME .???”
