G6reddot – “Hard”

It’s hard to love somebody, I get it
I love my dog, I miss my n*gga
It’s hard to love somebody, I get it”
Accompanied by a video that visualizes the Florida rapper coping with the loss of a friend, it reiterates the chorus by showing the love he has for his friends that are still by his side.

He wants the listener to understand the struggles of people from his neighborhood even going on to say, “When fans listen to my music, I want them to take away the gems I drop about the everyday things people from where I’m from go through – the mental challenges, the street life, and so much that comes with overcoming challenges in the ghetto.”
