Dark Light

Cautious Clay climbs our Street-Credibility-ladder at a real fast rate these days. With a forthcoming EP titled ‘Resonance’ due to be released soon. The Cleveland native, now based out of New York delivers a brand new slice of music titled “French Riviera” and keeps a sweet blend of modern R&B, Indie rock, and Jazz in check throughout the track for us to munch on after releasing the highly successful Blood Type EP four months back along with the video (further down) for “Cold War”.

I wanna be a cult classic
Black boys wrapped in plastic
Yeah stuntin is a habit
Whatever you want you can have it

We have absolutely no doubt that Cautious Clay is on to something big. And the results are very encouraging, listen to “French Riviera” below and get a sense of the compelling songwriting and composition in the instrumental. I gotta say though, for a split second, I thought I was spinning Drake’s “Hotline Bling”… But I clearly wasn’t, listen instead:

Lyrics

I wanna be a cult classic
Black boys wrapped in plastic
Yeah stuntin is a habit
Whatever you want you can have it
I always give a lot of lee-way
Don't mistake for a pre-pay (Pre-pay mastercard visual)
Don't wanna listen to your hearsay
We hit the beach up like its D-day
(We) stay solving all your problems
But last i checked you were the one with the plug
But I'm glad we met 
Hears a participation medal
Straight from Geppetto with your fake ass
So you wanna be bad
But my skin is my apparel
Say no to a fad
In this life we were meant to fail
Just take a moment on the offer
New words same lies to prosper
Follow purpose its an honor
We really wanna do it proper
Yeah its always been about me
They see i struggle to be carefree
You been testing my patience
I love but I'm anxious
A life for the thankless I know
Still solving all of your problems
But last i checked you were the one with the plug
But I'm glad we met
Here's a participation medal
Straight from Geppetto with your fake ass
So you wanna be bad
But my skin is my apparel
Say no to a fad
In this life we were meant to fail 
Everything could always be better
Guilty conscious light as a feather
Meanings always honest in spite of your mind
Stop changing your mind on me
Do it cus you know it don't matter
Live it like you mean it whatever
Something bout intention that makes all the difference I wanna be different
