The storytelling hip-hop artist and rapper, Dax is back with another beautiful tale about the realities of being a man in his latest release, “To Be A Man.” Sincere and vulnerable, the soulful track pierces through the veil of masculinity and reveals the toxic narratives that the gender is burdened with. “Can’t cry when life gets hard, unconditional love for woman, children and all. We know that we just have to play our part and nobody gives a damn about our broken hearts!” The thumbnail of the song juxtaposes the burdening woes of Atlas with the toxic expectations of society/world from a man. 

The track incredibly sensitizes the listener to the oppressive weight that a man is expected to carry. Its lyrics ring with simple and undeniable truths that line the lonely road that they are forced to walk. An acoustic piano backdrop forms an intimate setting for Dax’s warm baritones to paint the pain. His resonant vocal timbre knell with powerful emotions, as he unleashes his experience of manhood; Anger towards the reduction of a man’s value to what he can provide rather than who he is, reflection of a voicelessness that they suffer, and the agony of being boxed into an oppressive narrative. 

The track is available for streaming on popular sites like Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube Music, and Amazon Music!
