In Dax’s “To Be A Man” remix, the strong melding of soul, rap and a surprising twist of country creates an electrifying sonic landscape. The tinge of piano weaves an atmosphere that sets the stage for profound lyrical storytelling.
Encapsulating societal notions of masculinity, “To Be A Man” does more than just talk about expectations and pressures; it gives men a rallying cry to remain stoic yet empathetic in the face of adversity. Not many artists venture down this path, but then again, Dax isn’t ‘many artists’.
This remix is a powerful return after his critically-acclaimed album “What Is Life.” While staying true to its lyrical genius, the track injects new vitality thanks largely to featured artist Darius Rucker whose velvety vocals seamlessly blend into the mix. It’s like sipping whiskey with a dash of honey – an unexpected combination that works.
Dax’s flow on this track is hypnotic; his rhymes hook you in while delivering hammer-like truths in poetic fashion. The overall aura exhibits what one could aptly term as ‘Soul Rap’: raw emotiveness coupled with captivating rhythm propelling every lyric forward.
Ultimately, Dax’s “To Be A Man” addresses social discourse without sacrificing musicality ensuring its relevancy beyond current times while guaranteeing enjoyment each play through.
