With all that’s going on globally, Kenyon Dixon shares how he presses on with his new song “Get High, Get By” featuring rapper D Smoke. Dixon co-produced the song with Marqus Curtis and Chris “CBlakk” Daniels.
On “Get High, Get By,” Dixon sings about being bombarded by an enormous amount of stress that comes with just existing in the world. As a result, he turns to recreation medication, along with meditation here and there, as salvations for temporary relief.
“Still feeling I’m not where I’m supposed to be / Up in arms, running wild / And all they say is hopefully, soon everything will turn around / Another day another dollar to make / They never listen to a thing that we say anyway,” he sings.
“Get High, Get By” arrives behind the 64th Grammy Awards, where Dixon was nominated for Best Traditional R&B Performance for “Bring it on Home to Me,” a collaboration featuring PJ Morton, BJ the Chicago Kid, and Charlie Bereal. As for D Smoke, he was also nominated at last year’s Grammys for Best New Artist and Best Rap Album (Black Habits).
Dixon could be prepping for the release of his 2021 project, Expectations. The 18-track effort had a hefty list of guest appearances, from Alex Isley and Jade Novah to Avery Wilson and Ré Lxuise, to name a few.
Since then, Dixon has released tracks such as “Morning After,” “Love On Replay” with Tiffany Gouché and the Morton-assisted “Escape”
