*(Via WSYX) — It started with a beat and then new inspiration.
That’s what marked the return to music for Central Ohio’s own Mekka Don, the former Buckeye, turned rapper, turned entrepreneur. That beat evolved into his new single and video, out Tuesday, “Still Dope.”
“When somethings in your heart, it kind of comes to you naturally, especially as a writer,” Mekka Don said.
He found new inspiration after working through surgery and his own personal trials, along with the pandemic.
“Initially when I was writing the song, I was writing it almost like a comeback song for myself, personally, like I’m still dope – just cause you haven’t heard from me for a while doesn’t mean I’m not still dope,” he says. “But then I realized, no that’s not what this is supposed to be. This is actually supposed to be much more universal than just me.”
