Nearly every rapper/artist has a song in their repertoire that pays homage to their hometown or they places that turned them into the people they are today. Jay Z and Biggie never stopped rapping about the street of Brooklyn, Tupac always put on for Compton and Baltimore and lesser-known artists like Demrick (“Back In The Daze“) and Dayne Jordan (“Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood“) — I don’t know why these two popped into my head. Just go with it — make sure you know where they’re from. It’s a rite-of-passage.
Kipp Stone happens to fall into the “rapper/artist” category, so he offers his where-I-came-from tune with “1833,” named after the number the address he grew up at in Cleveland.
The Closed Sessions signee told Mass Appeal, who premiered the single, “[‘1833’] is where I grew up and became the man I am today.”
He continued, This song is personal but not too personal because there are a lot of people going through the same shit that I’ve been through. “1833” is one of the first times I’ve really had the chance to show people who I am and why I do what I do.
