Caleb Jacob's raw and cinematic words on "Sorry Momma"
"i'm sorry momma, i had to let out the truth"
Evocative words thrown down over somber keys on Sorry Momma by Caleb Jacob (Breneman) a Canadian-German hip hop artist based in Toronto, ON. that feel very raw and cinematic. Whether the words are based on real events or not, whether they are cast in poetic license or serve as caveats or allegories to be taken in, I like the images that this rap cast in my brain.
"I made this sad-toned song in form of an apologetic letter to my mother with a raw singer-songwriter approach. For all of the mishaps and all of the things that I did that I wish I hadn't done. This is a song to clear the air and to give an honest apology for the pain that I put my mother through." - Caleb Jacob
