On his new single "On Our Way," Midwest rapper Correy Parks delivers thought provoking lyrics about following your dreams, no matter what life throws at you.
The proud Columbus, Ohio native advocates a bright outlook and tunnel vision to succeed. His unique wordplay expresses how sometimes support can turn into competition, making friends become foes. The track, featured on his upcoming mixtape The Road Less Traveled, ends with a spoken word message: Truth, our roots lead is to our own promise land.
"'On Our Way' is about the stretch of life’s journey, where we discover that the power to create our own reality is in our hands," Correy told The FADER via email. "It’s about knowing that there will be fears, hardships, and lessons learned along the way, but it will all be worth it once we prevail. It's also the only track with a guest featured on the EP, fellow Columbus artist, Yogi Split, tying in the notion that once on this road, you will find unexpected partnerships in some amazing people. People who are equally positive and have similar visions of success will only help you reach your destination if you let them."
The Road Less Traveled is set to be released on March 25.
