Get Adam is a rapper, songwriter, and producer from Avondale, AZ, who has been dropping a series of singles to launch his momentum into the industry. “Saving Grace” is a song Get Adam rapped for, and about, his daughter, and the positive impact she has had on his life and how she was basically his “Saving Grace” – as she saved his life, giving him purpose and a reason to live, strive, and chase his dreams. Get Adam also produced the beat. Rapping to a daughter may not be a totally new thing, as legends like Nas and Eminem were once inspired to do the same, but it certainly is a heartfelt an appealing way to capture fans attention.
It’s a really powerful song, but true to Get Adam’s style, it feels very soothing. The artist’s approach has always been about a focus on his lyrical talent, rather than winding beats or booming bass. That his music is socially conscious and focuses on fatherhood this time around proves that he’s engaged with the world around him and sees music as a vehicle to affect change.
It’s clear Get Adam is striving to kick start his career. His last single, “Something” ft. Rrr Pow was a riveting masterpiece, and we know that he has a few classics prepared under his belt for the future as well.
But he’s also killing it in another part of his life that he would definitely say is infinitely more important than his rap career: His life as a father. His daughter is a huge piece of his output here, as he raps about her and his responsibilities towards her, so it’s no shocker to see him as a committed and involved father. It’s an amazing relationship to see, and deserves just as much celebration as his music receives.
Get Adam’s is not one to mince his words, touching on both his hopes and his vulnerabilities, as he hands out advice: “Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great ones make you feel that you too, can become great. And baby remember, fall down seven times stand up eight. And baby girl, hate is easy and love takes courage. And I got no checkbooks, got no banks. Still I’d like to express my thanks. Cause I got the sun in the morning and the moon at night, and with you in my sight my future is sunshine bright.”
So besides delivering good soulful music to help nourish his listeners’ souls, Get Adam comes across as also a pretty loving dad. The song silently urges all fathers to realize that their presence is more important the presents. A tune like this should resonate with anyone who proudly has children of their own, or a heart.
Apart from showing his love and gratitude, Get Adam provides his daughter with the ultimate survivor’s manual for this world. “Saving Grace” is honest, emotional and moving.
