“And I’m losing my mind / And I’m below the poverty line… I’m gonna win, though.” That’s how Philadelphia rapper Hezekiah kicks things off on “What’s It Gonna Be,” the latest single from producer IMAKEMADBEATS’ self-titled debut, available now via Doxside Music Group. An album that ranges from introspective to boisterous, heavy to hazy, all while displaying IMMB’s soulful touch throughout, this latest single is instantly inspiring, complete with roaring organs, distorted bass, keys, hand claps, and more.
“I wanted to make music that could change someone’s life, even if it’s just for a day,” says IMAKEMADBEATS, discussing what inspired the track and ending with, “To inspire, to do better, to reach farther.” Joining Hezekiah on the track is his sister Keziah, as well as crooner Thomas Clay, who holds down chorus duties. An anthem of defiance and perseverance, with “What’s It Gonna Be” IMAKEMADBEATS continues to prove he’s one of the top rising producers around.
