“Life is a precious gift. A gift we often take for granted until it is threatened. Pain can be a haunting reminder to appreciate every waking moment.
So we wrote a song to share our hope in the midst of that pain. At the time of this song’s composition, some of our loved ones were battling cancer. We wanted to encourage them to hold on and tell them we are here waiting, hoping, praying, and fighting with them.
Some have been released from their pain forever, others are still fighting. Hold on…
We truly cannot wait for this amazing piece of work from the Grammy award winning rapper and we trust that it will be a strong source encouragement to those going through any form of pain.
