This new track by Scotty is a personal one. 2016 has not been an east year for Scotty. He lost 9 people close to him this year and the opening to his new track “Bye Bye”. Scotty will be releasing his new project Daily Bread, which sheds light on his pain from the recent losses and how he’s dealing with all of it. Sotty recently sat down with FADER to talk about why “Bye,Bye” hits home.
“I cried when I recorded it. It was a tough song to get through and even for me to listen to now. ‘Bye Bye’ is about what happened to me when I lost 4 people in 4 weeks. It talks about exactly what happened, verbatim. You can probably hear me crying rapping that shit. It’s one of my favorite songs on the project but it’s the hardest for me to listen to – I don’t play it by myself, I only listen to it when there’s other people around.
I love working with Ty on this record b/c we share that soulfulness in music. He’s able to drive home those kinds of points b/c he’s been through some of the same things I’ve been through. You can hear it in his voice.”
