I am honored to be the first to bring to you The 17th’s new single, God’s Away On Business. I interviewed The 17th last year because the man’s writing skills are of the next level variety. He also does his own production and his beats are on par with some of the best names in the business. So when something new drops from the man, I want HHD to be at least a small part of it.
God’s Away On Business is bound to turn more than just a few heads. While not necessarily refuting personal belief systems, The 17th does make an interesting and well made case to turn those systems on their head. He provides a number of different analogies to make his points, controversial though they may be. He addresses the difficulties in believing in someone he has never seen just because society feels compelled. Check this small snippet of the song:
Oh God, dear God, I hope that you exist. So i can live my life with purpose and with happiness. And when I put my hands together and I pray to you, please dont have something else to do. To you, from me, to you.
This song is the first single from The 17th’s forthcoming project, Inside Jokes With Complete Strangers. Stay tuned.
