I made a beat dedicated to my friend who died earlier this year. His birthday passed recently so it was pretty rough. I took everything I felt and turned it into a beat and named it ST4GES (ADAM4NTIUM'S THRENODY).
There are 4 stages to both the beat and to what I felt throughout this whole thing since he passed. Adamantium was his nickname. He was in a frat and that was his line name. So many people close to him in college knew him by that. His line number was also 4. A threnody is a poem, speech, or song of lamentation, especially for the dead. So even though the title is crazy, it means a lot to me, and to a lot of people close to him.
Dude was one of my best friends for over 13 years and he always supported me. I really just want this beat to do him justice.
I dont mean to post a sob story. I hate those. I just wanted to give some background of where I was at and what the title means. I hope yall enjoy
