Alex Wiley “Top Of The World”
Alex Wiley lets loose a very personal record where he talks about his battle with depression and suicidal thought when he was 16. "Top Of The World" has the Chicago native rapping and crooning over a spacey beat. The new song is apart of a trio of records.
Wiley explains to HuffPo that "Top Of The World" was apart of a project called Generous Dubsack. He continues, "[The project] was loosely based on my high school experience, but it was about a kid who’s having a hard time in school, flunking out of high school basically. A lot of shit’s going on in his life, he’s really depressed and he’s suicidal. He plans to kill himself every weekend after school, but every Friday he has a ritual that he buys weed and his dealer always gives him more than he pays for. It was going to be about that human connection and I kind of scrapped the project, but I made a few songs for it—including 'Sexual Dolphin' and 'Lil Stoner Boi'—and this was the main song that made me want to make this project in the first place.”
