B.Way Talks Passion Fruit Love Sessions, Girls, Relationships: "The Mind Games Are Wack"
When it comes to atheism, you have no god. There's nothing there that may fill a void. And at the same time you only have four bars and there's nothing else there.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I'm so glad people get that song. It's so crazy. I read a YouTube comment, and this guy is just like, "Yo, he's a atheist because he doesn't believe in relationships or the bullshit girls put guys through and just feed us lies. The chick's burying me with lies." And I was like, "Yeah, dude. You fucking get it." That's awesome. You put your heart and soul into a lot of stuff, and as time progresses, it starts to feel like a lie. You don't believe in a lot of shit, like, "Fuck! I wasted my time on that." I decided to make a song out of that. I like the outcome.
Do you feel like that project capitalized on a sound that's hot right now.
Been trying to figure that out lately. Since I put out that project, I've been in the studio. But I haven't necessarily, wholeheartedly worked on anything since that project. Passion Fruit Love Sessions took us two months to do. We'll work on one song a week.
So I wouldn't say we're necessarily trying to capitalize on anything. It was just more so coincidence, because while we're working on it, Justin Timberlake drop and all of that, so it was just like, "Oh shit." Kind of crazy that this is the wave right now, but fuck it.
What is it about these women?
Just the emotions they make me feel. You know, man. At the end of the day, everybody wants something to lay beside, or just something to feel. We all just want to feel something. This world bogs you down. Just life throwing shit at you and you just want to feel something real or just feel appreciated, wanted by something, and you just try to evoke those emotions into songs.
Do you get easily drawn in?
No. That's the issue. That's funny, I had a girl tell me, "I want to meet the guy in your records, because the guy in real life isn't really what it cracks up to be," and I was just like, "Damn, that sucks, but cool."
It's like you have these ideas of what it's supposed to play out to be and then like ... A lot of variables come in to play. It's just weird. Just catch weird vibes. Could be paranoia too. The initial phase of meeting people is cool, and then you're trying to feel them out, and then you just overthink it sometimes, on both ends. Not just my end or not just the girl's end. The mind games are wack.
