Deriving from “stay awake,” to stay woke is to keep informed of the storm going on around you in times of turmoil and conflict.
Dee Wyz is a 19 year old South African artist. I had the pleasure of listening to his song Stay Woke. When I first listened to the song the beat caught my attention IMMEDIATELY. He first starts off the song by repeated “Stay Woke’ x8, since this is a very common term that my peers and I use, I had to keep listening. The song tells the life story about the hard times Dee Wyz has been through. I feel this song could be considered a pick me up, for those who are going through the same or similar situations. Since Dee the age of 3 Dee’s experiences have all helped him become the amazing artist he is today.
This is the type of music I enjoy listening to. Artist that sings/raps about REAL life experiences make REAL music! The amount of personal information Dee exposes in this song means he isn’t afraid to share his journey to success. This song could come off as vulnerable but that is not the case at all. He is sharing his story to tell the listeners that you don’t have to be stuck in your situation. I would definitely be looking out for more music by Dee Wyz, and Stay Woke has just been added to my “fave song” list. He is an artist that everyone is to look out for.
No matter what you are going through remember to always “STAY WOKE,” being aware of situations means you have taken the first step in realizing that change needs to be made. Never let anyone determine your destiny for you. Your life is yours and you’re the only one who can make it better for YOURself.
