HipHopDX Premiere – Singer-songwriter Jon Brown, who co-wrote “Jesus Walks” with Kanye West, linked up with Jack Splash for the recently formed Kill The Motherboard duo. As they prep their debut album, The Legend of Picasso Jones, they’ve dropped a new single titled “The Water” featuring Eric Biddines.
“As soon as Jon and I started this song I could tell it was going to take on a very mystical vibe,” Splash tells HipHopDX about the song. “His lyrics about life and death and the cyclical nature of everything really blew me away. I knew as soon as we finished Jon’s parts that we needed to add Eric Biddines to the song.
“Eric had told me he grew up in a Jehovah Witness community, so I knew he would probably have a very interesting perspective and take the song to the next level lyrically/spiritually. Honestly, I still get chills every time I listen to this song because of how Eric Biddines comes in at the end like Hip Hop spiritual guru for a generation of lost souls.”
Brown adds, “‘The Water’ is a song about redemption or second chances. I feel like no matter what we’ve done in our life, no matter how egregious the act, we all deserve a second chance. you know, an opportunity to make things right. Every moment we’re alive is another opportunity to change or improve upon ourselves.
“In God’s eyes, we don’t run out of second chances, we just run out of time.”
The Legend of Picasso Jones is expected to arrive in the near future. Until then, listen to “The Water” up top.
